Torture Roundup


When Tim and I wrote about torture here yesterday, we were wandering into a debate that's been raging in the blogosphere for a while. Rather than recapitulate everything now, I direct readers to the sites of Jim Henley, Arthur Silber, and Eve Tushnet, all of whom have made very compelling arguments against legalized torture, and Eugene Volokh, who believes there may be some occasions when torture is justified but also recognizes the dangers of changing the law.
