+  CIA Report on Torture: What's the Catholic Response?

  • Description: Yesterday a special Senate committee released a massive report on torture techniques used by the CIA. The report contained many disturbing facts about how suspected terrorists are treated in US holding facilities worldwide. Is torture ever acceptable? If a known terrorist has been captured, can torture methods be used to uncover information on coming attacks, thus saving countless innocent lives? Where do we draw the line between acceptable interrogation methods and torture? Al discusses these questions and more.
