Prisoner torture not an aberration but what we’ve become

No Force, No Fraud
by Bob Smith

While do-gooders like to view such programs as benefits for our society, they deliberately wear blinders and make excuses for the real results. They applaud the few successes, with great, pompous, self-congratulatory celebrations, in order to blind themselves to the many others who suffered unnecessarily. When pressed, they take the escape of the ‘greater good’ and delude themselves that even those ‘broken eggs to make the omelet’ can be rescued if only we spend more money and use yet more FORCE. We’ve known for a long time that our Guantanamo prison was probably much like what we now can no longer ignore at Abu Ghraib and other Iraqi facilities. We’ve known that torture and abuse exist in our own civilian prisons. What is the difference? That we can no longer turn our heads and deny? That we can now see it rather than picture it in our minds? Or, is it that it was acceptable until we got caught? (originally published 2004; posted 02/13/08)
