Propaganda and media manipulation from the PTB have successfully made this practically a non-issue. Americans should be outraged and embarassed by this.
This is way beyond the death penalty, as torture is often worse than death. I think there are people who can't understand this without seeing the videos or suicide attempts.
We're the richest and most powerful nation on earth - by condoning torture, we've set an example for humanity.
The sad thing is, we gain nothing. It's not even effective,
I'd re-post this thread as an attack on Obama. He hasn't held a single Bush Administration official accountable. By doing nothing, our president has effectively legalized torture. I think that would get people talking.
