Rejali on torture

This is a Google video of Darius Rejali, author of the definitive book Torture and Democracy, giving an hour+ long lecture on the subject of its title. It is a highly informative and highly recommended watch for anyone interested in knowing more about the topic. When you can turn on the tv or the radio or your computer at any given moment and are likely to be confronted by some fool offering lame justifications for torture, being able to listen to Rejali speak authoritatively and intelligently on the topic is like a breath of fresh air.
