Torturing evil scumbags to prevent the murder of tens or hundreds of thousands of innocent civilians is morally correct. It is NOT "being like them" They torture to cause pain and to terrorize innocents. We should torture to protect human life. Let me repeat: It is morally appropriate to torture admitted terrorists in the defense of tens of thousands of innocents.
All these comments about how "we should never torture" come from the unthinking. Every person should ask themselves: "If my children will suffer and die because information about a terrorist attack was not found out because "we don't torture" who will be to blame?
