The arguments we have laid out here against torture are not complex and they are well known. Torture is not a reliable source of information; it is a reliable way to get folks to say what you want. Torture is immoral and illegal and should never be practiced--a view shared by that hero of the right, Ronald Reagan. To practice torture is to surrender any claim to the moral highground, and as Peter Storey intimated, it is to number one's self among the barbarians. Interestingly, in this piece, a man who actually served as an interrogator takes on Cheney's claims that torture "works." I am only one small voice, but I promise to continue to raise this issue to advocate for a return to the moral high ground for as long as I can or until change happens.
