In Public Discourse, AHS speaker Jennifer Bryson explains why America's rejection of torture would reinforce our commitment to America’s founding values and support excellence in intelligence collection for the defense of our nation:
"All too often, inexperienced pundits have presented us with a stark choice between security and humane treatment of detainees. This is a false set of options. The real contrast is between torture, on the one hand, and security through interrogation consistent with respect for the humanity of the detainee, on the other."
In Public Discourse, AHS speaker Jennifer Bryson analyzes Austria’s attempt to mandate a single German translation of the Quran:
"This proposal reflects gross ignorance about Islam, ignorance about the factors contributing to violent extremism, and obliviousness to the nature of modern media. Last but not least, it smells of cultural imperialism."
