Reset the line on torture

| | TrackBacks (0)
The line on torture, on detainee treatment, on disclosures to Congress and the public, has never been reset. As Bush and Yoo [John Yoo, former attorney in the Bush administration, who wrote memoranda, which have been widely criticized for offering shoddy legal analysis, supporting the use of torture in interrogations] chat with Oprah and appear on talk shows touting their books, and waterboarding becomes the stuff of late-night jokes, Americans may no longer even know or care what constitutes illegal conduct during war.

In plugging his new book, George W. Bush has proudly proclaimed his approval of waterboarding. It is one more example of a growing contempt for the rule of law at the highest levels of power.
