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.
