A quote from that article: "In 1995, Philippine intelligence agents tortured Abdul Hakim Murad, whom they arrested after he blew up his apartment making bombs. The agents threw a chair at Murad's head, broke his ribs, forced water into his mouth, and put cigarettes out on his genitals, but Murad didn't talk until agents masquerading as the Mossad threatened to take him back to Israel for some real questioning. Murad named names." (The article does include an American angle, fruit of the poisonous tree and such.)posted by Yogurt at 12:19 PM on October 21, 2001
The tone of the FBI officials quoted in the article is particularly disturbing. I get the feeling that everything would be okay if it wasn't for that pesky 'we don't torture' angle. They seem more concerned about the bad PR than the moral and ethical ramifications.
