Can the TV series "Lie to me" Help Defeat Terrorists?

The fictional TV show "24" has a character, played by Kiefer Sutherland, who tortures people to get information. Actual non-fictional humans agree with this practice. Hard to believe, but it's true. I sometimes wonder:
  • Who are these people?
  • Who or what provides their moral compass?
  • What kind of religious faith or ethical system do they follow that supports torturing others?
  • What kind of corporations hire people who are for torture?
  • Do these people work for my company?

A new fictional TV show (based on the research of Dr. Paul Ekman) called "Lie to Me' uses a close understanding of human behavior to tell if people are lying. It appears successful and, get this, no torture!

Since they are both Fox shows that means that Fox News watchers might be exposed to it. Will that make them want to give up torture? I doubt it. Some people just seem to get off on the "tough guyness" of fictional character Jack Bauer. The idea of torturing other humans is something they seem to want to do. I don't know why decent organizations and humans want to continue to be associated with these people who want to torture, but apparently some do.
