The Worst Part...

... is that there are folks in our government who think this is a good way to get accurate information out of folks. Now, I'm pretty sure that if it had been me in that sleeping bag, the first few blows would have had me confessing to being the second shooter on the grassy knoll (hint: I was born in 1978). But rest assured, shoddy intelligence practices won't get you far in the US in this post-9/11 world -- only as far as the UN.

Seriously, folks. If we can't bring ourselves to believe that torturing people is wrong, can we at least think of it as a dangerously ineffective intelligence strategy? You know, intelligence? That thing we like to ignore here in the good old USA?
