Legalise torture?

Why America's top liberal lawyer wants to legalise torture

I see what he is saying, but I think it is wrong. Maybe I am too wedded to the idea of "do onto others, as you would have them do unto you" - and yes it applies across religions.

Is going in front of a judge first, somehow sanitising what follows ? What verifiable facts could be presented to such a judge? When a judge of a foreign country has a similar power over coalition captives ?

This is indeed a slippery moral slope, and we are accelerating.....
