From The Young Fogey:
Do We Owe Japanese WWII Waterboarders (executed after the war) an Apology?
From The Western Confucian:
The Gipper (+RIP) on Torture:
1. "...torture means any act by which severe pain or suffering, whether physical or mental, is intentionally inflicted on a person for such purposes as obtaining from him or a third person information or a confession..."
2. "No exceptional circumstances whatsoever, whether a state of war or a threat or war, internal political instability or any other public emergency, may be invoked as a justification of torture."
