For some reason, the subject of torture fascinates me. Yes, we could go deep into my childhood, but let’s not. How far should we go to get DATA from a human being? The answer seems to depend upon:
- What is at stake. What will happen if you don’t get information?
- The damage to the life of the informant.
- The “badness” of the informant.
All of this reminds me of Abu Ghraib. I’m not sure if what bothered me more about that situation was the torture or the idiocy of our troops to take and release those photographs.
