  •  i would like to see these differing accounts.... (0+ / 0-)

    ...reconsiled, but i haven't seen any reason so far to suppose Kiriakou is acting in bad faith.

    the only other things we know about him - his previous article about how things are slipping in afghanistan and his consulting work on "kite runners" - don't offer any hint that he might have an angle in talking about these torture incidents (other than increasing his media presense to the benefit of his new career as a consultant).

    anyway, isn't it at least possible that Kiriakou's account is 100% accurate?

    i think it we're going to make a moral case against torture our case should be able to withstand not just the theoretical ticking timebomb scenario but a real one as well. we have to be able to make the case that even if lives may be lost as a result of not torturing, it's still worth it to our country in the long run.
