For some, it's a discussion that should never take place. Others argue that it's a conversation we must revisit as circumstances change. The issue is torture: Is it ever justified? Is it ever legal? Is it ever useful? Does even talking about torture, legitimize it? NPR's Neal Conan and guests debate the issue.
