This is such a tough subject! Before 9/11, I was opposed to torture in any way shape or form.I felt the U.S. was above it! After 9/11, I would have "green-lighted" anything the government wanted to do, to insure that another attack didn't happen again. Now, so many years later, I find myself against torture again. Am I being hypocritical? Should we lose our humanity against an inhumane enemy? Is torture righteous if it keeps US safe? Should we maintain our morality no matter what? I'm so conflicted!!!
