A US Senate Intelligence Committee report, yet to be released, is expected to say that there is no evidence that so-called enhanced interrogation techniques were effective in helping to track down Osama bin Laden. The finding contradicts claims to be made in a forthcoming book by Jose Rodriguez, a former chief of CIA clandestine operations, that some useful intelligence was in fact produced.
Note that whether this is true or not, the aforesaid techniques, which constitute torture, are illegal under both US domestic and international law. It is right that they should be. Torture is never morally justified.
