New Scientist interviewed Michael Koubi, the Shin Bet’s chief interrogator. Koubi discussed issues of torture (he denies the charges) , his experience personally questioning Sheik Ahmed Yassin, his thoughts on the Abu Ghraib scandal and more. The British magazine also interviewed a Palestinian interrogated by Koubi, who admits that while the ordeal wasn’t pleasant, there was no torture.

Why is "New Scientist" doing this? What has the Shin Bet chief done to merit an interview in such a periodical? I think this is another case where the line between science and politics is blurred which is a shame.
The New Scientist had obviously set out to embarrass Israel, hence the 'plug' for the Ramallah victims of torture' website address. But Koubi has outsmarted them and comes out of it very well.
