Every day lately, I come across something that totally freaks me out. Today, it was an article from CNN. Dershowitz: Torture could be justified It is a very one-sided “debate” about whether the US should allow the FBI, CIA or whoever to get “torture warrants” if they feel that torture is necessary in a given case.
Hello?? What country is this again? Did I somehow stumble through a vortex into a parallel universe, or what?
No, we should not have “torture warrants.” All humanitarian issues aside, there has been study after study showing that torture doesn't even work, that after being tortured to their breaking point, a victim will tell you whatever they think you want to hear, just to stop the torture. You can't get the truth that way.
Good God. Somebody save us.
