Econo-Girl is going to start a national discussion on torture and interrogation, not as an expert, but as a person who is driven to know and communicate.
We cannot ignore the role of faith, morals and identity in this discussion.
All perspectives need to be aired, including the tit-for-tat and effectiveness arguements. If, indeed, torture is effective, we need to discuss it, as morally abhorrant as that is to some. Keep in mind that effectiveness is not the final word in the discussion.
What are the strengths and weaknesses of various interrogation methods?
What is the impact of false confessions to counter-terrorist analysis?
What constitutes torture? What is its definition?
Let's examine the conflict between what is said, and what is done. Thank you in advance for your participation.
