I've said this over and over again but I don't think anyone should determine policy about torture unless they have been through it. SERE at least! There's simply no way to evaluate what is or isn't torture until it's done to you. Period.

I think Mr. Mukasey should go to Fort Bragg or San Diego and ask Special Forces to give him a sample. Then he can decide.


Great post, Nicholas, and one that I whole-heartedly agree with. Have you read 'Waiting For The Barbarians' by the South African author J.M. Coatzee? I just taught it for the second time to my first semester students, and it has, I think, a lot of relevance to the current situation in the 'war on terror', particularly the dependence on the 'other' in order to construct identity, the politics of Empire and the efficacy of torture. I know how much you enjoy literature, Nicholas, and I think this short novel would provide a lot of food for thought.
