Torture is Bad!

Hi all!

I know I don't have to convince any of you that Torture is Bad. One of the frustrating things about the torture debate is that we see commentators (usually liberal commentators, unfortunately) pretending like the debate is over whether or not torture is a good idea. I'm sure 99% of the conservatives are horrified at the thought of torture (just like Liberals). I can understand how a few might rather argue about the value of torture rather than whether or not any such torture took place. It is an easier argument to win; but it's also lazy.

Anyway Jeanne D'Arc, over at This Modern World, has
a piece on where our soldiers might have learned to torture. Apparently they have to go through a training course in how to deal with torture - and in so doing, they learn how to torture. It's kind of a scary thought, really.
