Chairman of the Armed Services Committee, Senator Carl Levin (D-MI), discussed enhanced interrogation techniques on June 17, 2008. ” ‘If we use those same techniques offensively against detainees, it says to the world that they have America’s stamp of approval,’ said Levin at the start of a committee hearing. ‘That puts our troops at greater risk of being abused if they’re captured. It also weakens our moral authority and harms our efforts to attract allies to our side in the fight against terrorism.’ “
