This is one area that most of Obama’s critics don’t get. It’s not that the U.S. doesn’t or has never tortured anyone — it’s that torture is bad all the way around. It doesn’t produce actionable intel. It makes the survivors revengeful. It is beneath this country at this point.
I bet holidays at the Bush house are torture for the old man. Can you just see W slapping the old man on the back and saying, “I got two terms! I got Saddam’s gun!” Poor Poppy and Bar.
