Can harsh interrogation techniques and torture ever be morally justified, for a nation at war or under the threat of imminent attack? In this volume, ethicist Paul Lauritzen takes on ethical debates about counterterrorism techniques that are increasingly central to US foreign policy in the aftermath of 9/11 and discusses the ramifications for the future of interrogation. He examines how doctors, lawyers, psychologists, military officers, and other professionals responded to the issue of determining whether and how detainees in Afghanistan and Iraq, who arguably had information about additional attacks, could be interrogated. Codes of ethics governing professional practice are critical, according to Lauritzen, because they provide resources for democracies and professionals seeking to balance concerns about safety with civil liberties, while also shaping the character of those within these professional guilds.
