The plan he divulged was Ramsi Youseff's plot to blow up 12 American 747s and DC-10s over the Pacific on the same day. More arrests followed, and the plot was broken up. The bombs were kept off the planes, several thousand people, mostly Americans, didn't die. The roughly treated prisoner is fine today.
Tell me that you wish he had been spared the month of rough treatment, and the jumbo jets had been blown up instead, maybe with your family aboard.
This is a WAR, and the rules are not the same as during PEACE.
