Intellectual Honesty



This is what intellectual honesty looks and sounds like -- Christopher Hitchens, who supports the Iraq War and too many elements of the Bush-Cheney approach to counterterrorism, not only voluntarily subjected himself to waterboarding but wrote of the experience, considered the arguments clearly, and concluded by calling it what it is, torture.

Bravo.

I think we all know that this was a body double; he wasn't holding a glass of scotch and smoking. Even if he were captured, it's obviously impossible to remove those two items from his body!
