24 and torture

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Brigadier General David Irvine wrote at HuffPo last week:

I taught interrogation and the law of war for 18 years to U.S. Army, Air Force, and Marine interrogators. The truth is that torture is just as likely to lead to false information or no information, not solid intelligence. History is replete with victims who have refused to talk or lied or died under torture. American torture has killed or addled suspects who might have provided vital intelligence if interrogated humanely.

He's no fan of the Fox series 24, the new season of which reaffirms its position as the most torture-iffic program on television. Irvine writes, "As the 7th season begins, I am joining Human Rights First in asking the producers to stop showing torture so irresponsibly." You can add your voice to his here.
