ABSTRACT

Torture and Terrorism: A Pyrrhic Victory   [open pdf - 3MB]

From the thesis abstract: "This paper explores the problematic decision by the US Government to condone the use of various methods of physical and psychological torture when interrogating prisoners captured since the beginning of the Global War on Terror (GWOT). Additionally, it briefly examines the background of torture and the efficacy of physical torture for obtaining information. It also analyzes the moral, ethical, legal, and strategic ramifications of pursuing this particular torture policy."
