Take Torture Off the Table

| | TrackBacks (0)

Despite Obama's clear policy ban on torture, and the clear prohibitions in US law, there is little to stop a future president, in the wake an extraordinary national security event like the September 11 attacks, from unearthing unethical lawyers to revoke Obama's 2009 executive order, throw established law out the window, revive the twisted reasoning behind the old torture memos, and fashion a new "neo-torture memo" or other legal document to justify the CIA's old methods again...

why, if the tactics were illegal, is no one being prosecuted for them?
