Punting On Torture

JustOneMinute: Punting On Torture

Including, from the comments:

Either torture absolutely, positively, undeniably doesn't work. Or it might.

Ignoring for the moment the issue that if a dem is president there is more latitude, the question of what to do if torture does work arises.

What costs are you willing to accept (actually, impose on other people) to forego torture?

The best way to avoid that question is to insist torture doesn't work. To insist and insist and insist that it doesn't work. Then comes the OBL op and the question is reopened.

Most inconvenient.
