In keeping with it’s commitment to honesty, the Obama administration has released the dirty secrets hidden by the Bush Whitehouse about our country’s support of torture.
Torture is inhumane, illegal, and a violation of the basic principals for which this country has always stood. Now, we are assured the people who committed the acts are not to be punished because they were following orders. If such argument was unacceptable when the Nazi war criminals made it, it is unacceptable now.
Let us urge President Obama to stand up against torture by bringing war criminals to justice--no matter whose government employed them.
