Really Bad News: We Are All Torturers

Fred Branfman reviews an article entitled 'We Must All Be Prepared to Torture,' by Charles Krauthammer

Branfman's conclusion:

Since our leaders are torturing right now, we must all acknowledge our shared responsibility for it at the present time. Given the daily revelations of U.S. torture around the globe, we cannot, like the Germans, claim that we do not know. We cannot turn our heads and pretend that we do not see. As only the perceptive Mr. Krauthammer – so rightly praised by the NY Times for articulating the case for torture better than the Bush administration – has had the courage to suggest, President Bush and Vice President Cheney have already made torturers of us all."
