Obama Keeps Distance From Torture Debate, At Least For Now : NPR

See on Scoop.itDidYouCheckFirst

President Obama banned enhanced interrogation techniques, but he’s largely avoided discussing whether the tactic ever produced valuable information.

Greg Russak‘s insight:

Nothing can ever justify torture. Nothing. It is amoral, antithetical to all religious beliefs, and reprehensible in the extreme. It is not even a realiable means to obtain information, not that that could ever justify it. The ends do not justify the means. It’s disturbing to think that a society presumably built on laws and freedoms and liberties can somehow be comfortable with and in support of government policy for torturing any human being for any reason. History will be the utlimate judge on this. It always is.

Proud middle class husband, father, and progressive liberal. Registered Non-Partisan but have much more in common with Democrats than Republicans. Consider Libertarians to be immature and underdeveloped in their understanding of reality. An atheist who doesn't care what you believe so long as you stop pretending the Founding Fathers intended for you to legislatively force your beliefs on everyone else. Laughs out loud in mocking disdain at the abject lunacy of birthers, climate science deniers, and hard core tea partiers. If that offends you, too bad. You're not rational and have no place at the adult table.
