Talking Over Torture, Cont'd

Apropos my earlier post on torture, Jonah Goldberg might be interested to know that in his Daily Show interview, John Yoo asserts that distinguishing between “enhanced interrogation tactics” that constitute torture and those that don’t was the central interrogation-related question confronting the Bush Administration after 9/11. This further undermines Mr. Goldberg’s argument that whether or not waterboarding constitutes torture is a peripheral, mostly semantic argument.
