WASHINGTON - Most Americans and a majority of people in Britain, France and South Korea say torturing terrorism suspects is justified at least in rare instances, according to AP-Ipsos polling.
The United States has drawn criticism from human rights groups and many governments, especially in Europe, for its treatment of terror suspects. President Bush and other top officials have said the U.S. does not torture, but some suspects in American custody have alleged they were victims of severe mistreatment.
The polling, in the United States and eight of its closest allies, found that in Canada, Mexico and Germany people are divided on whether torture is ever justified. Most people opposed torture under any circumstances in Spain and Italy.

They don't seem to call me too often either...
Interesting thread below.
Nowhere in the story does it define 'torture'.
I am in favor of coercive interrogation, as was used by the CIA recently, to include waterboarding.
Also, I approve of drugs (truth serum) as an acceptable means of obtaining information.
