I’m proud to read today that obama had the courage and strength of leadership to force the disclosure of america’s recent torture of suspected terrorists.
At the same time I’m ashamed to be a citizen of a country that would institutionalize torture.
Starting in 2002 I blogged my disgust for this and utter shock that our country actually had a *debate* about whether this was ok. Are you fucking kidding? imagine 1933 germany *debating* whether there were circumstances that justified genocide.
As much as I disagree with obama’s economic policies, I respect his desire to raise our country back up, to regain our moral backbone.
