If the challenge is accepted then this will be my first formal debate on debate.org, so what better light-hearted way to test the waters than with the issue of torture?

The debate topic is this motion. 'The Use of Torture by the United States Government Post-9/11 was Justified.'

The use of torture in question will be limited to that which is included in the 'Senate Intelligence Committee Study of the Central Intelligence Agency's Detention and Interrogation Program'. (https://web.archive.org...)

Pro's responsibility in being for this motion will be to argue that enough gains were made through the use of torture to justify it, and my responsibility in being against this motion will be the opposite.

Round 1 of the debate will be for pro to announce their acceptance and to either confirm their understanding of the debate parameters or ask further question regarding them.
Round 2 of the debate will be for opening arguments.
Round 3 will be for rebuttals.
Round 4 will be for further rebuttals and closing statements.

Proper spelling, punctuation, and respect are of course not mandatory, but their use would be appreciated.
