Recently I read Vince Flynn's latest book "Pursuit of Honor". At one point during a Senate hearing between a Liberal Democrat Female Senator, who supports late term abortion and was berating the central character, undercover CIA agent, Conservative Mitch Rapp, for torturing a Muslim terrorist to gain information. In response the Mitch Rapp character stated the following.
"You're an intelligent,
civilized woman. I would never expect you to openly condone
torture. But I'm confused about your outrage. A little over
a year ago a Saudi named Abad bin Baaz emigrates to the United
States, takes up residence in Washington, D.C., and begins receiving
shipments of explosives and providing intelligence for the very
same terrorist cell that last week used those explosives to blow
up buildings and kill innocent civilians. I catch him red-handed
and in an effort to try to apprehend the terrorist who are still
at large, I allegedly dislocated his shoulder and slapped him
around and got him to spill the beans on his little band of thugs,
and you find my behavior repressible."
