The End of Torture at American Hands

This article is by Jane Meyer, the author of The Dark Side, an absolutely incredible book. The article is about Obama's signing of executive orders to end torture by Americans. He had the support of quite a few generals, one of whom said something very quotable: "One of them, retired Major General Paul Eaton, stressed that, as he put it later that day, “torture is the tool of the lazy, the stupid, and the pseudo-tough. It’s also perhaps the greatest recruiting tool that the terrorists have.”
