It simply doesn't work

By Creature

For people like Ducan Hunter and Michael Smerconish torture is about vengeance, not saving lives. If they wanted to really save lives they'd be open minded to the fact that torture does not work (if anything, it's counterproductive). Trust me, I would like to string Khalid Shaikh Mohammed up by his toes and beat him senseless just like most people, but that's not the way to get at what he knows in the best way possible.
