PSSST, I THINK YOU'RE MISUSING "NEVER AGAIN"....

Never again, in 2015? (ARIEL DORFMAN, 24 December 2014, Open Democracy)

How is it possible that only 29 % of Americans, according to a Pew Research Center poll, believe that the interrogations carried out by the CIA and denounced as torture by the recent Senate Report are wrong?

...it didn't mean we'd never firebomb civilians again, but that we'd never drop our defenses in the face of threats again.

Here's a simple thought experiment : we know the Nazis are running extermination camps at full capacity, but don't know where they are.  We capture a member of the high command who refuses to tell us where they are.  Is the moral position to allow the Holocaust to continue unabated rather than waterboard him?
