Expediency Horror

Eric Martin says it doesn't matter if it works:
To use a slightly more extreme example to highlight the point, if Cheney had suggested that raping (or simulating the rape of) a detainee's spouse would be an effective means of getting the information desired, should our popular discourse engage the merits of that argument?  Or, rather, should we recoil at the notion of engaging in such immoral acts for the sake of some expediency, real or imagined?
