Couched in bogus language like “waterboarding,” a torture technique that this country used to convict Japanese soldiers of war crimes after World War II, our government has made it official that we feel free to torture people.
This is un-American. But it’s just one more example of the corruption of this nation in the past few years.
And it will come back to haunt us. We have just given permission to the rest of the world to torture Americans if they choose.
We should be ashamed. Too many of us are not.
