Obama's consent to torture: asking for history to repeat itself

| | TrackBacks (0)
Obama could have, and should have, opted to tell the American people the truth at the onset of his presidency... most importantly, to acknowledge the truth of America's amorality in matters of human rights, making the necessary amends... Obama is fully aware that bringing these criminals to justice is a no-winner in the game of politics, particularly when we have such a divided country where half or more of the people believe - or have been brainwashed to believe - that torture is in "our case" justified, always under the pretense of ubiquitous self-preservation.
