Tough Interrogation of Terror Suspects is Necessary

Tough Interrogation of Terror Suspects is Necessary

The BriefGet Up To Speed

Is tough interrogation of terror suspects necessary?  Proponents argue that when traditional techniques fail, interrogators must have the necessary tools to prevent future attacks and save innocent lives – regardless of whether their practices are palatable to the American public. Others cite the potential for false information, reciprocation by our enemies, and moral responsibility as reason to end enhanced interrogations once and for all.
