Should we Torture Suspected Terrorists?


Should We Torture Suspected Terrorists? Dr. Paul Ekman poses some very interesting things to ponder on this subject. Torture violates the 8th Amendment to the Constitution, which prohibits cruel and unusual punishment. While there’s been much argument about whether non-citizens are entitled to the protection our Constitution affords us. The bigger question is what has tortured gained us? Have so-called “harsh” interrogation methods protected us from attacks on homeland since 9/11? Or do we owe our safety to more traditional human intelligence, non-coercive interrogations, and cyber intelligence? This article from Ekman is worth the time
