Torture incorporated

By Libby

I was tied up all day so I'm just getting to the explosive revelations on our Commander Guy's legacy of torture, (which shockingly the White House denies exists), so Sully already has the quote of the day on this story.

They upended two centuries of American humane detention and interrogation practices without even letting us know. And the decision to allow one man - the decider - to pre-empt and knowingly distort the rule of law in order to detain and torture anyone he wants - is a function not of conservatism, but of fascism.

Sully also scores the question of the day.
We have war criminals in the White House. What are we going to do about it?

I've been saying this for a very long time. It's good to see more influential voices adding some volume. There's nothing else to call this breach of our former national ethics but a war crime. I'm appalled that I still see anyone willing to excuse such barbaric conduct. It's simply un-American.
