And we wonder why we are hated around the world. Because we set absolutely no high bar, no standard by which others could feel proud of following. A Republican acquaintance uses the excuse of torture for "keeping us safe", you know, as in Oklahoma bombing, Columbine, Virginia Tech, etc etc. Any child who has suffered physical abuse will tell you, that they will do and say anything to STOP IT! As adults we are no different. No one is "trained" to withstand pain and abuse. It creates more hatred, more hatred, more hopelessness. Scruples are important if we are to be that shining city on a hill. Come to think of it, we all suffered torture for 8 long years. Everyone single individual on video who excused, defended or denied torture, needs to be held for war crimes against humanity and jailed. I'm signing every petition coming my way to get this done. I send you and your husband healing blessings Susan.
