What Diane said.
Glenn Greenwald had the following excerpt in his Friday Salon post/
Convention Against Torture, signed and championed by Ronald Reagan, Article II/IV:
No exceptional circumstances whatsoever, whether a state of war or a threat or war, internal political instability or any other public emergency, may be invoked as a justification of torture. . . Each State Party shall ensure that all acts of torture are offences under its criminal law.
I cut and pasted into an e-mail using the White House contact:
I think everyone who wants prosecution of torture crimes should do the same. It takes 2 minutes and its free and if you read this you are already online.
Isn’t it nice to know, that despite all this torture stuff, that the reason the world hates us is for our values and freedom.
Or, as in one of my favorite MASH episodes, they hate us for our latrines.
until the gnews demand it, expect it to simmer.
the gnews are still fighting against the pendulum as much as the reaganuts.
