In his reply to Harris, Red Dog makes perfectly valid practical arguments against torture which do not in any way address Harris's position. Harris says here, and has repeatedly said, that torture should certainly be illegal.

He may say that torture should be illegal but in this article he also argues that it at times is the moral thing to do (see my previous comment above). I don't agree with that. I think not only should it be illegal but it is always immoral.
