Dec. 22, 2014 By Jack Jodell (in association with Fair and Unbalanced.com – see my Blogroll in the lower right hand column).
Happy pre-holiday weekend, everybody! This being Monday, it’s time for our week-beginning podcast from our resident podcaster extraordinaire, Burr Deming. As many of you know, Mr. Deming is also the creator and chief author of the brilliant blog called Fair and Unbalanced.com
Today, Burr tackles the subject of torture and talks about its bizarre interpretation by one of the most bizarre Extreme Court judges we have ever had – Antonin Scalia. Talk about Grinches…
We are presented with a moral ambiguity, a sort of ethical Sophie’s Choice. What about that ticking clock and the choice between torture and the death of innocents?
The harsh, terrible truth is that the choice does not exist. It never has.
Instead, we are endangered by a much more dangerous ticking clock.
After we investigate ticking clocks and enhanced interrogation , maybe we should think about the most dangerous ticking clocks we’re likely to encounter.”
