Is Agent Jack Bauer a liberal or conservative?

On 24 yesterday Agent Bauer shot a captured terrorist in the thigh to get vital information about the kidnapping of the Sec of Defense. Before that they were employing questioning methods that got them nowhere.

Should we be able to torture to get this kind of info?
