Radioactivity: Live Call-In (Thursday) | Listen to this entire show:

Good morning, I'm Rob Lorei, welcome to Radioactivity. In recent days several commentators have claimed that the killing of Osama bin Laden shows that there are positive benefits to torturing terror suspects. Here to talk about torture is Marjorie Cohn.

Cohn is a professor at Thomas Jefferson School of Law and author of the new book "The United States and Torture: Interrogation, Incarceration and Abuse."

ABSOLUTLY NOT!!!

Just make them "cross their heart and hope to die"!!! Or is crossing your heart a little too religious… and hoping to die too suicidal??? Let’s just have them pinky swear… and everyone go out and smell the pretty flowers. Oh… wait a minute… I might change my mind if we can use the tools of the inquisition…

Torture

Perhaps we should ask the 2,500 plus that were murdered on 9/11! That's right they're dead!
