Wrong Reasoning

Lately talk of torture has turned, on the conservative/Republican side to the efficacy of the "program.' Ex-Veep Dick Cheney says, "release all the documents to show that 'enhanced interrogation' produced results." Others have echoed that - Mukasey and Hayden in an op-ed.

Does it matter? Does effectiveness rule the day? Do the "ends justify the means?"

Know what else works - date rape drugs.

Know what was most effective tool to get people to convert to Christianity - the Spanish Inquisition.

Mull that over as you think on whether torture "works" or not. Then decide if that matters one bit.
