Whether It's Torture or Not, It Works
The latest headache to hit the libs
President Obama’s national intelligence director told colleagues in a private memo last week that the harsh interrogation techniques banned by the White House did produce significant information that helped the nation in its struggle with terrorists.
“High value information came from interrogations in which those methods were used and provided a deeper understanding of the al Qa’ida organization that was attacking this country,” Adm. Dennis C. Blair, the intelligence director, wrote in a memo to his staff last Thursday.
One of the things that has always bugged me about the liberal position on advanced interrogation techniques is that they want to have it both ways. Not only do they claim the moral high ground by declaring torture wrong, but they also maintain that you don't get anything valuable out of it. Well, now we know they're wrong on the second point.
