Unless Bush offers a substitute plan to the bill he banned yesterday, I do believe I would wholeheartedly support impeachment (for him and Mr. Cheney).
I would hate to be him and be responsible for abdicating responsibility on this issue–or just as bad, taking it and not doing anything about it.
Am I missing something here? Yes, maybe we need to be careful to allow some of these interrogation techniques…I can see the whole “good cop/bad cop” being vital and not that unethical. But holy crap.
I tremble for the affects and effects these practices and the condoning of these practices will have around the world, on our own men and women perpetuating them, and between us and God.
This honestly may be the most ashamed I have ever been for my country and my government. I’ve traveled around the world and I have never been embarrassed to be an American, up until now. I don’t care what kind of criminal you are, this is not right. I don’t care what we need to find out–simple execution is far better than this.
I am well aware that the foe is evil, sometimes beyond comprehension. But descending to the same level in unspeakably wrong…we are in the process of abdicating much (if not all) of any moral/spiritual/ethical/humanitarian high ground there ever might have been.
That must change.
It has to change.
