Legal advocates, military leaders and politicians have increasingly advocated for torture as a legitimate interrogation technique - particularly within the George W.

The NLGSF Committee Against Torture exists to counter this advocacy and advance ideas which had been almost universally accepted until recent years: torture of prisoners is a criminal act that is never justified; and all people deserve due process.
