It’s official. The US tortures


It wasn’t “enhanced interrogation” that Dubya ordered. It was torture. An independent, nonpartisan committee says ““it is indisputable that the United States engaged in the practice of torture”

If Republican former congressman Asa Hutchinson, recently in the news for spearheading the NRA’s push for more guns in schools, stands up and tells you that the U.S. under Bush conducted torture, not “enhanced interrogations” – well I guess you can take that to the bank.

The torture of course continues. Gitmo has not been closed.We now have a president who orders people killed by drones, saying with fine Orwellian logic that any males thus killed are terrorist until proven otherwise, then watches the whole thing like a video game. You can call this what you want. I call it depravity.
