In Defense of Waterboarding
by

The always-excellent Deroy Murdock today has this provocative column at Human Events (among other places) called “Three Cheers for Waterboarding.” And the ever-thoughtful Pete Wehner adds this at NRO, wrestling with the same question and eventually coming down in much the same place.

As both of them indicate, it is awfully easy to engage in moral preening against so-called torture when you are playing to the cameras, but a lot harder to do when hundreds of thousands of lives may depend on it.

Both columns are well worth reading.
