Quotation of the Day for August 9, 2011

"Most importantly, we should be talking about the morality of torture, not its efficacy. When the U.S. infantry becomes bogged down in a tough battle, they don't turn to chemical weapons even though they are extremely effective. The reason they don't is because such weapons are illegal and immoral."

- Matthew Alexander, former senior U.S. military interrogator, on why justifying torture of terrorism suspects on the grounds of results is indefensible.
