Torture, 9/11 and the 20th Hijacker

It turns out that Zacarias Moussaoui, known as the 20th hijacker admitted to his plan to fly a commercial airliner into the White House. Moussaoui knew, in detail, the plot of 9/11 and if he told the truth to the FBI when he was arrested, it likely would have prevented that massacre. Therefore, my question is this: Knowing that Mosssaoui had detailed information regarding the plan that Al Qaeda implemented on September 11th, 2001, would you have supported the interrogation techniques of coercive interrogation and or torture to extract information from Zacarias Moussaoui? Before your knee jerk reaction keep in mind that if the torture worked and Moussaoui gave us the vital information needed to stop the attacks that took place on that day, it would have saved the lives of 3,000 people. Not only that, but the war in Iraq would not have taken place, which would have saved another 2,000 US soldiers lives and tens of thousands of innocent Iraqi lives. Given that, if torture would have resulted in preventing 9-11, would you support it? It’s not an easy question for some to answer but I can tell you my opinion. In hindsight, I would have been willing to torture this man for information myself.
