I fear that Mr. Ingram knows only law but not philosophy or linguistics. He twice refers to a "controversy" over antiterrorism policies. There is no controversy, only a difference of opinion. One might as well say that since some people believe the earth is flat while most do not or because some people believe in woodland fairies while others do not that these matters are controversial. For a difference of opinion to amount to controversy, the disputants must be informed, intelligent and able to reason soundly enough to keep those who have not yet made up their minds in a quandary as to whom to believe. Only fools, members of congressional committees, lawyers in the Justice Department and other nincompoops do not realize that "enhanced interrogation techniques" are illegal and even unconstitutional.
