Poll: Americans Favor Torture in Rare Occasions

Not that I place much stock in polls, but this is interesting:
“I don’t think we should go out and string everybody up by their thumbs until somebody talks. But if there is definitely a good reason to get an answer, we should do whatever it takes,” said Billy Adams, a retiree from Tomball, Texas.

In America, 61 percent of those surveyed agreed torture is justified at least on rare occasions. Almost nine in 10 in South Korea and just over half in France and Britain felt that way.
Of course this doesn't address the debate over what is considered torture. To some, America would be guilty of torture if we used the comfy chair.
