“Uncivilised” Douglas Murray Suggests there are “Degrees” of Torture which is Justified

In a shocking video in which anti-Muslim, neocon Director of the Henry Jackson Society Douglas Murray downplays the recent revelations from the report investigating CIA’s torture, he states that there are “degrees” of torture in response to Diane Abbot’s reprimanding.  The allusion of “legitimate torture” will no doubt be a reference to the US Justice Department’s authorisation of waterboarding.  Waterboarding is torture.  There is no question about it.  Murray’s defence that there may be justification because it can give credible intel (citing a US Democrat) and September the 11th is decrepit as it is discredited.  Moreover Irving Kristol, his neocon godfather doesn’t agree with him either! Writes Kristol,

“Civilized opinion properly decided long ago that there is no justification [for torture], whatever the circumstances.

In an upcoming blog, I will demonstrate that despite this exoteric statement, the esoteric understanding of neoconservative thinking has allowed the pathway to this revolting legacy of the West to be forged.
