Torture as policy

As if we still needed it.... More forthcoming proof of a wholesale and conscious change in policy at the highest levels of the US government towards allowing torture. See Andrew Sullivan's post on this.

I honestly care little about the debate over the number of prosecutions of low-ranking military people and contractors - the so-called bad apples - which is nearly a red herring. I care much more about prosecuting for crucially important moral and pragmatic reasons those who have formed the policy and turned the US into an overtly torturing nation that talks out of the side of its mouth.
