  •  The law is already a ban (2+ / 0-)

    And I do respect the difference between torturing and not torturing. My point was not on that specifically, but on the absurdity of having to ban something that is illegal. What it should be is that this administration holds people to the ban in place, but doesn't prosecute those who broke the ban.

    If knowledge is power and power corrupts, does that mean that knowledge corrupts?

    •  Apparently, it wasn't enough of one. (0+ / 0-)

      Yes, you clearly respect the difference enough to keep making up new and exciting excuses to insist it didn't matter, and changing the subject.

      •  Where did I say it didn't matter? (0+ / 0-)

        Why are you putting words in my mouth?

        Not torturing is obviously better than torturing.

        If knowledge is power and power corrupts, does that mean that knowledge corrupts?
