Lawyers and torture

I received this essay from a mailing list I subscribe to today. Apparently it is the transcript of a lecture by P. Sabin Willett, "My worst moment as a lawyer." It goes over justifications for torture, the way prisoners are produced, and a defendant who decided to give up.

Defense lawyer P. Sabin Willett's remarks were delivered December 5, 2006, at the Newburyport MA Amnesty International meeting. The transcript can also be found posted (in pdf format) on the website of the Woodrow Wilson School.

Thanks Andras -- this looks like the same text (maybe the slides are available somewhere too?), but it's in a PDF nicely formatted for printing, if anybody wants to do that.
