Torture will just push our enemies to more violent excess

The Guardian:

The American term “enhanced interrogation” closely mirrors the Gestapo’s term “sharpened interrogation”, whose rules were spelled out by its chief, Heinrich Müller, in an infamous directive in 1942. Permitted Gestapo techniques included a starvation diet, sleep deprivation, dark cells and exhaustion, with beatings only allowed in the presence of a doctor.

My emphasis.  Something any journalist still using the “enhanced interrogation” euphemism should remember.
