Bush and Torture
So what's the problem? Personally, I don't believe that torture should ever be used; it doesn't work according to interrogation experts; is harmful to the torturer; backfires; and is immoral. That being said, I fail to understand the Republican and Bushy hand wringing and failure to admit they think torture is a useful weapon. The constant refrain we hear is that if we knew someone had information the revelation of which would save thousands of lives, we should use any method available to us. So admit it; you believe torture is useful. Stop being so disingenuous. You can't have your cake and eat it too.
