One thought on “It was and is torture

  1. My reaction to this always, apart from the shock at the sheer inhumanity, is – why would anyone be stupid enough to think that torture would work? If the purpose is to gather information, to intimidate, to coerce a confession, torture is arguably the WORST tactic to achieve any of those goals. It’s also expensive and time consuming. In terms of winning the ‘broader’ war, it’s a disastrous move. At an executive level, how can anyone have thought that this would achieve any practical purpose?
