- Report Gives New Detail on Approval of Brutal Techniques
- In Adopting Harsh Tactics, No Inquiry into Prior Use
- The Torturers' Manifesto, a Times editorial calling for a full investigation, up to impeaching Judge Jay Bybee and putting Alberto Gonzales and Donald Rumsfeld on the stand. Yeah, I do think I can handle that.
Paul Krugman commented earlier this week that the people who approved and carried out the torture are monsters. I don't know that I agree with that; ordinary people are completely capable of monstrous behavior while having the most normal lives.
In any event, I hope these people are investigated and prosecuted to the full extent of the law. I don't want torture and abuse committed by or for the United States. Torture is just plain wrong, not to mention being an ineffective means of interrogation.
