Torture, Continued

Dan Froomkin for The Washington Post comments about the United States' participation in torture: "Finding out what our government has been doing in our name, and openly debating our interrogation policies, should have been high on the national agenda since the disclosure of the shockingly inhumane treatment of prisoners at Abu Ghraib." However, genuine discourse has been stifled, Froomkin writes: "Bush shuts down discussion by declaring that 'we don't torture' - yet he won't even say how he defines the term."
