“Unique” Torture Information Extraction

CIA director Porter Goss insists that his agency does not torture, but admits to “unique and innovative ways” to gather information from prisoners:

“This agency does not do torture. Torture does not work,” Goss told the newspaper USA Today.

“We use lawful capabilities to collect vital information, and we do it in a variety of unique and innovative ways, all of which are legal and none of which are torture.”

Perhaps the CIA would benefit from the Democrat-approved torture techniques documented by Random Numbers (I’ll just give you the first of six):

  1. The Kerry Attention Grab: Senator Kerry clears his throat repeatedly until everyone is forced to listen to his tales about river boat trips to Cambodia and magic hats.

On the other hand, 63 percent of Americans believe that torture can be justified under the right circumstances with only 32 percent saying it can never be justified. Maybe we should leave information extraction up to the experts.
