From Tomdispatch: Karen Greenberg on What the JAG Memos Tell Us About Torture
From Tomdispatch today
Karen J. Green, co-editor of The Torture Papers, a widely acclaimed book on Bush administration torture policies, explores recently released documents written by military lawyers in 2003 arguing against the torture policies then being hammered out by White House lawyers as not just morally wrong but strategically short-sighted. This offers us a new view into government deliberations at that time and quite a different argument against the use of torture -- one that proved prescient indeed. "The Achilles Heel of Torture, What the JAG Memos Tell us" pushes the issue of administration torture policies in new directions. Please check it out.
Note that I did a strong overview intro on the subject of torture, detention without end, extraordinary rendition and the Bush administration as well.
