are we in a post-moral era?

so Dick Cheney has joined in the US torture debate.

surely using the, "But the torture worked" defence is like a guy defending a charge of rape by saying, "Well it got me an orgasm, didn't it?"

just because it got you what you wanted, doesn't make it right.
torture as a means to an end is no better than torture being an end in itself.

we're in deeply disturbing moral territory when the publicising of, and efficacy of, torture are the issues at hand,

you will be known by how well you treat your enemy...
