Re: Endorses torture, too!

We could have an ethical discussion about the use of torture in obtaining information, but given it doesn't work it does seem to fall over at the pragmatic stage, rather than needing to convince people of the ethics acceptable to the civilised world.

Depressing how often the straw man ethics debate starting from the assumption it does work comes up.
