Winning their hearts and minds

The United States operated a secret prison in Afghanistan as recently as last year, torturing detainees with sleep deprivation, chaining them to the walls and forcing them to listen to loud music in total darkness for days, a human rights group alleged Monday.

Does anyone still think the US doesn’t torture? What must the rest of the world think, looking at what the US does, which is in jarring contrast with the values the US claims to believe in?

It’s time to take back the country from the ultra rightwingers who currently run it (and who are doing a terrible job of it too, considering that practically no one anyone believes their lies any more.) Their kingdom is crumbling. Now is the time to crank up the organizing and mobilizing. Don’t give them time to regroup.
