Torture and Misplaced Trust

I'm not sure what the morbid fascination is, but the boys at Triablogue are still praising the use of torture. I guess knowing that a suspected terrorist is being waterboarded (or worse) thousands of miles away somehow makes them feel safe. Whatever helps you sleep at night, guys.

Just remember this: the government you trust to protect you now is the same government that was completely powerless to protect anyone on September 11, 2001. It's also the same government that saw to it that no one on board those planes could protect themselves. Is that the kind of track record that warrants trust?

Oh, come on, Lee, you can't tell me you don't remember Jesus' own words! "Do unto others BEFORE they do unto you." It's in the Bible, you know.
