Americans like torture more than most of the world

The U.S. public is among the most likely to consider torture justifiable: 58% say this, while only 37% disagree. There are only five nations in the survey where larger shares of the public believe torture against suspected terrorists can be justified: Uganda (78%), Lebanon (72%), Israel (62%), Kenya (62%) and Nigeria (61%).

How did you get that statistic? America may like it only because it doesnt know what it is. I didn't - until I found out. - TI
