"An Alternative Protocol"

"An Alternative Protocol"

Abby Zimet

In the Wall Street Journal, former CIA director Michael Hayden and former attorney general Michael Mukasey explain why the release of the torture memos "was unnecessary as a legal matter, and is unsound as a matter of policy."

Its effect will be to invite the kind of
institutional timidity and fear of recrimination that weakened
intelligence gathering in the past, and that we came sorely to regret
on Sept. 11, 2001...Disclosure of the techniques is likely to be met by faux outrage, and is perfectly packaged for media consumption.
