And running around chasing misinformation is time consuming. remember, we actually acted on al Libi's misinformation. Can you not see how much that can hurt us?
There are two reasons not to torture:
1) It is ineffective and unrelaible. This means it is not likely to save any lives or really help us at all. And there is really no such thing as the ticking timebomb.
2) It is illegal and immoral. Conservatives used to speak of core values, of honor, but in this they seem to mean that core values are only core when we want them to be. Rule of law is only important if we using them to push around some young people at a OWS rally. And torute is cruel only when people we don't like do it. It's proper for us. I can't reconcile these contradictions and hypocracy. We need to have core values and respect rule of law, especially among people who represent our values and our laws.
