Mark Bowden on Torture

24 March 2009

Interesting that Mr. Bowden and I have separately come to similar conclusions on torture and related topics.  Different, but similar enough.

However, some of my views are remarkably different than any I have seen published by authors or readers.  There are some fundamentals that are being left out of the discussions, even in Mr. Bowden's piece.  Will publish some of those thoughts as soon as is feasible.  This subject requires much thought; the writing should not be microwaved, but properly baked.

Please read Mr. Bowden's piece.  I disagree with some of his final results, but not greatly.  His intellect and thoughtfulness are worthy of respect no matter the disagreements.  Mr. Bowden always causes one to stop and consider:
