I never understand the concept of wars with 'rules'.. surely the idea is to kill or be killed? The side which goes around in a gentlemanly fashion being careful to always hit above the belt is probably not going to come out on top. War is a savage thing and dressing it up with lots of little 'humane' directives seems totally hypocritical. Who chooses the point where interrogation techniques become unacceptable? Can you really say that you would NEVER countenance torture no matter how much the information extracted would affect the future of your own family?
A little first hand experience of terrorism often has a surprisingly hardening effect on ones attitudes.
Also you seem to be totally identifying yourself with this woman when you know nothing about her. Suppose she was generally mentally unstable. Suppose she had just been dumped by her commanding officer and was trying to ruin his career in revenge .
Just saying .. I am always so impressed by the way that you care so much about injustice.

Well I hate war too. But it's a good question. Why is torture worse than shooting someone in the head in a gentlemanly fashion? I'll try to answer that post-coffee.... later today...
