Not Just Bad Policy -- Torture Is Against the Law

| | TrackBacks (0)
GOP presidential candidates are endorsing torture, again.

"Waterboarding a prisoner is against international law and could subject the torturer -- or the person ordering or approving the torture -- to international sanctions, including prosecution in international courts," writes whistleblower John Kiriakou

"What Trump and his cronies are advocating is illegal, immoral, and unconstitutional. In fact, it's an impeachable offense. No president can order anybody to commit torture. Anyone who does should be hauled before a judge."
