I, along with colleagues at the law firm from which I recently retired, represent three Guantanamo detainees in a habeas corpus action. My wife and I try to listen each week to "Speaking of Faith" as we find that it generally bridges the Intellect/faith divide for us with provocative topics. But tonight's penetrating discussion with Darius Rejali on torture, its history and repercussions, had particular resonance. I never thought I would live to see the day when torture was the subject of rational debate much less national policy in this country. In the midst of a media fueled, Cheney centered debate on the "efficacy" of torture, Mr. Rejali and Ms. Trippett brings this issue back to its essential moral, human roots. This program should be required listening for all Americans.
