did we get info through torture?
even if we did is the end result worth it?
i say no.
false information obtained under torture was one of the reasons we went to war in iraq. a war that caused hundreds of thousands of horrible deaths; it's end result is the empowerment of our nascently nuclear enemy iran. iran is our enemy because of other violent cia blunders made in the mid 20th century. how lasting the damage caused by these episodes of deadly mischief can be.
