Hello friend,

here u go mate-
When using the word consider to mean believe or contend, the word as or to be should not be used. Consequently, the sentence structure with consider controversial interrogation...to be permissible should be changed such that to be is removed. The correct idiom is: to consider W X

The two things being considered (as well as how they are considered) should be parallel:
to consider W X and [to consider] Y Z where the second to consider is understood or implied and X and Z are parallel
to consider controversial integration tactics permissible and international laws such as the Geneva Conventions irrelevant

A.)the words to be should be eliminated as they are unnecessary and break the proper idiom to consider W X
B.)the idiom to consider W X and Y Z is properly used as to be has been removed
C.)the sentence structure (to consider W as X and Y Z) is neither parallel nor idiomatic
D.)the sentence structure (to consider W X and Y to be Z) is neither parallel nor idiomatic
E.)the sentence structure (to consider W X and Y as Z) is neither parallel nor idiomatic

Please consider KUDOS,if my post helped :)
