We Respond to our Readers: The Torture of America

When I read Bob Higgins' post I said I'd post a link, and here it is.

Here's the first paragraph - go read the rest for yourself:

My America, at least the America of my birth, does not resort to the use of torture. We were taught that fact in public schools, American public schools, schools in which we learned old fashioned American values about family and fairness, values like the presumption of innocence, due process, respect for the law and the rights of man.
How anyone can read this post and still advocate for the practice of torture of detainees is beyond me. But, of course, I'm sure someone will.
