torture in mind

There's been some discussion on the use of torture in the blogosphere. (No, not using torture on bloggers although that's not a bad idea.)

And on tonight's episode of Commander in Chief, we hear from the President in response to a terrorist threat: "I don't want to hear that he was tortured." And from her security advisor: "Understood."

This ambiguous statement, of course, comes back to haunt her later in the episode. And I'll stop there before we move into spoiler territory, which may give people cause to pull out my toenails.
