Torture

Ariel Dorfman:
Are We Really So Fearful?

My government is going to take another giant step backward in the history of humanity, which has in the past several decades almost universally declared torture to be a crime against humanity.  The Congress of the United States is going to vote on making torture legal.

We know that the Bush administration has tortured.  They are not even denying it.  They did so, however, in defiance of US law and the Geneva Conventions.  Now they want the US Congress to make their actrocious actions legal; they want to protect themselves from being held accountable in US courts.

The link above is a strong statement against such legislation.

Please read it.  Please act.
