One of the most facile dismissals of torture is that it doesn't work, so why bother? That's tempting, but it's too easy. Torture seems to me very likely to work provided that you can verify the information...
Ah, analogy without any supporting information behind it -- does that mean we cannot torture you?
Did it ever dawn on you Megan, that if you can "verify" information to begin with, it means you are getting information you already know from a person you are torturing.
Meaning you are torturing for no more than shits & giggles.
Well, works for Cheney.
