Bellamy (2008), explains that due to the War on Terror, torture has become prevalent. Bellamy explains a case that happened in 2002, which regards a Canadian pilot, Maher Arar, being photographed with a known terrorist. Arar stated that he had no knowledge and opposed the claim that he had any connection with terrorism. It was proven that there was no evidence that Arar had a connection with the terrorist. He was sent to a foreign country and was consecutively tortured for 12 months. (2008)

On this official external broadcast institution of the United States federal government, Bowman explains how America’s next FBI director is stating that he is completely against waterboarding, therefore against torture. He finds it illegal how waterboarding is used as an interrogation technique. Bowman explains that former assistant attorney general James Comey is known for dividing the former Bush administration over a debate about waterboarding. However, he did in fact agree with the Bush administration that some enhanced interrogation techniques are indeed lawful. Bowman stated that Comey’s first reaction to waterboaring was how it is pure torture and continues to state that it is illegal in his eyes. Bowman’s article addresses the argument whether or not the US has the right to torture suspected terrorists which is key.
