So by that rational you would be perfectly fine with being beaten and tortured if you were in another country, simply because you aren't a citizen of that country? That you would be content with being locked up for years, with no judicial review to determined if you were guilty or innocent of the charges leveled against you? With having activities carried out on you that meet international definitions of torture?
It may have escaped your attention, but there already is plenty of evidence that torture was officially sanctioned and carried out. Lack of evidence is not the issue here. The issue is whether or not further confirmation of Americas crimes would place its soldiers and possibly citizens at increased risk.
Would you enjoy being tossed into a cramped box, and told there was a wasp or hornet being put in there with you? Being deprived of sleep for 180 hours?
Then we have the waterboarding. Wikipedia has the following to say on that
Waterboarding is a form of torture that consists of immobilizing the victim on his or her back with the head inclined downwards, and then pouring water over the face and into the breathing passages. By forced suffocation and inhalation of water, the subject experiences drowning and is caused to believe they are about to die. It is considered a form of torture by legal experts,politicians, war veterans,medical experts in the treatment of torture victims, intelligence officials, military judges,and human rights organizations.
In contrast to submerging the head face-forward in water, waterboarding precipitates an almost immediate gag reflex. The technique does not inevitably cause lasting physical damage. It can cause extreme pain, dry drowning, damage to lungs, brain damage from oxygen deprivation, other physical injuries including broken bones due to struggling against restraints, lasting psychological damage or, ultimately, death. Adverse physical consequences can start manifesting months after the event; psychological effects can last for years
To all intensive purposes, you are being drowned.
You cannot breathe, except when your torturers let you.
You do not know how long it will go on for, or if this time they will not stop, or perhaps they'll make a mistake. It will be done again and again and again until such time as you tell them everything you know.
And until they believe you.
Then maybe they'll do it again, just to make sure your story is consistant.
Perhaps you'd like to volunteer to have it done to you. I know a few reporters have, in covering the issue. Then you could laugh it all off, and dismiss it as harmless fun, couldn't you? I'm sure the fact that every one of those who have been waterboarded broke within seconds, or perhaps a few minutes, well, that doesn't mean anything, does it?
Think about taking a trip to somewhere in South East Asia. Someone hides some drugs in your bag, and they get found. You try to protest your innocence, but they don't believe you.
You're tossed into a jail, and all the things I've described here, they start doing to you, to get you to name your drug smuggling accomplices.
But hey, who cares. You're not a citizen of that nation, you don't have any rights.
