Top CIA man says,
“Like a lot of Americans, I’m involved in this internal, intellectual battle with myself weighing the idea that water-boarding may be torture versus the quality of the information that we often get after using the water-boarding technique. And I struggle with it.”
Thing is, it’s not really an intellectual problem, it’s a moral problem, and it would be a shame to think that lots of Americans are really making this confusion.
He doesn’t even give an accurate description of the second alternative. That word should strictly be “quantity,” not quality.
What a world we live in.
