A fairly definitive torture analysis

It's always great when there's a knotty intellectual problem, and someone does the heavy mental lifting for you. Here, in a carefully reasoned analysis, Charles Krauthammer explains why torture is not always wrong, and why the U.S. is not violating the Geneva convention in its current handling of terrorists. I find the article persuasive, whether I look at it from a moral point of view, a political point of view, a security point of view, or a legal point of view.
