I Backslide on Torture


I’m pretty strongly against torture, especially when it’s as stupid as making a bunch of naked men pile up in a pyramid. We should be better than that, and the way you fight says a lot about your cause.

I’ve been watching a lot of 24 lately, so I feel I have to equivoquate a bit. If a nuclear power plant melts down, Air Force One is shot out of the sky, and a terrorist has a nuclear warhead and its launching codes, you may torture people to try and stop him.

But nothing less than that!
