FOX Chicago: Ahmed Rehab Discusses the Role of Torture in Interrogations

“I don’t think anything justifies torture. We as a civilized nation should be anti-torture. Many governments in the Western world, and the world in general are against torture. We don’t want to be known as the ones who are employing a Spanish Inquisition torture technique to keep ourselves safe,” said Rehab.

“I think that, also, it’s important to remember that in the past we’ve been obtained false information because of torture, or the threat of torture. Specifically, in 2002 when Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi gave us false information about Iraq’s involvement with Al Qaeda which helped lead us to war in Iraq.”
