Oliver Willis weighs in on the subject of torture:
- A few folks are concerned at the news that Khalid Sheikh Mohammed will undergo torture since the news stories indicate that his interrogation will be in an "undisclosed foreign country". Count me among the uncaring. This man chose to join a terrorist organization responsible for the deaths of thousands of Americans on 9.11, as well as the deaths of hundreds of Kenyans in the embassy bombings, Australians in Bali, and other hotspots around the world. If putting him under the wire for some temporary discomfort is gonna get his little lips flapping, I've got no problem with that. If he didn't have any info to offer, I wouldn't shed a tear over a bullet to his brain, even. Frankly, when we're done picking his little brain I wouldn't hold a grudge against the soldier who stopped him in an escape attempt.
