Torture and Truth

We should demand the release of every last memorandum and paper on the extent, nature, and effectiveness of the former Administration’s enhanced interrogation techniques, because America is not the Vatican, and the American people are entitled to know not only what was done, but whether it was effective. We are entitled to facts, and truth, and to gauge how we balance those acts and those results against the alternatives. If that embarrasses the Republican or Democratic Parties, so be it. The alternative is a politicized war over every last foreign policy action, and the last time we tried that gambit, it ended with smoking craters in the Northeastern United States. -- Christopher Badeaux @ The New Ledger
