Behind the debate over the Central Intelligence Agency's destruction of videotapes depicting waterboarding and other harsh interrogation techniques lies a fundamental question: Can government officials use such aggressive tactics without violating US law?

This I am amazed at. They still haven't ruled on the Bush interrogation tactics. How long is it going to take, until he is out of office? But with the theme of the article, I do not believe the tactics are right. It is easy to say when playing armchair quarterback, but when these detainees are fighting for fundamentalism, they will never break, chances are that is. So if that is the case, why use these methods? There has to be another way. Maybe trying some real diplomacy?
