Senate Torture Report

Senate Report on Torture. (large pdf)

Holy cow! I just started skimming this 500+ page summary and I’ve seen enough to know that we are no better than ISIL. I don’t know if we (the US) ever really had the high ground, but having seen what my government is capable of, I am sure that we are on the bottom of the pile of the slimiest of the slimy.

Now that some of what we have done has seen the light of day, it is high time we prosecuted those who perpetrated it and those who covered them. Anything else makes each of us as responsible as those who actually did the deed.
