Speaking of Torture

A few months ago I recommended several books that might prove helpful in the event you feel yourself in danger of succumbing to the common, but false, view that torture has only recently become standard policy for U.S. intelligence agencies. Among these was Darius Rejali's monumental (really) Torture & Democracy (Princeton UP, 2007). You can find this short, recent interview (just '6 questions') with Rejali over at Harpers. And you can find an Op-Ed of his - "Five Myths About Torture & Truth" - online here at The Washington Post.
