In the first days after the 9/11 attacks I promised to use every element of national power to fight the terrorists, wherever we find them. One of the strongest weapons in our arsenal is the power of freedom. The terrorists fear freedom as much as they do our firepower.

Guard: "Run! Be free!"
"Detainee": "Arrghhhh! Nooooo! I'll tell you were bin Ladin is. Please! Not freedom!
Guard: I wasn't talking to you. I was giving this American guy freedom.
Detainee: Oh, sorry. May I have another beating, please?
