For my final paper I will be comparing arguments about present day issues with torture. My title will be TORTURE, COMPARING IT’S PROS AND CONS. As stated in my title I will also be discussing the perceived good and issues associated with torture. To aide me in my research I will be using six sources. The first two sources will be books written on the subject of torture. My next two sources will be a peer reviewed journal article and a peer reviewed U.S. Government document. Both of these documents will be covering the torture subject. My last two sources will be from the class text book AMERICA NOW. I am planning to write six pages, double spaced and very well written and though provoking paragraphs. When first assigned with this project I thought that it would be hard to write. Later I realized that the torture debate is full of facts, figures, and controversy. Now I believe that that it will be easy to write.
The points I will cover in my paper are the following: 1. WHY TORTURE. 2. IS INFORMATION GATHERED FROM TORTURE VALID. 3. WHO WILL ULTIMATLY BE RESPONSIBLE IF TORTURE IS UPHELD TO BE LAWFULL. 4 WHAT GOES THROUGH THE MIND OF THE TORTURED INDIVIDUAL. AND 5 WHAT GOES THROUHGH THE MIND OF THE TOUTRUER. Other points may follow
