Pro-Torture Beyond Their Dreams

Slate explains that the Military Commissions Act of 2006 approved by Republicans in Congress and by a small number of Democrats like John Salazar and Ken Salazar from Colorado, gave torture advocates even more than they had dreamed possible in 2002 when they wrote the torture memos. They assumed that they were manufacturing defenses, which might or might not prevail, when the perpetrators were ultimately called to account in the courts. Instead, the Military Commissions Act has prevented that moment of court review from ever happening.

Our country has been betrayed.
