SO A U.S. MISSILE kills the Pakistan Taliban commander Mehsoud and most people sees it as a "natural" thing (which it is). But if instead of blowing him into pieces the CIA had captured him, ferried him to Guantánamo, and kept him standing up for eight hours while interrogating, there would be so many that would be shouting "torture, torture!" off their lungs. That's a pretty good incentive to kill, no?
