On Bush/Cheney/Rum... torture

Torture is profoundly immoral; doesn't matter if it's inflicting pain on a detained prisoner or a helpless puppy or a paraplegic. And it appears that the Bush Administration was trying to force false confessions out of not-necessarily-terrorist enemy combatants -- connecting Saddam to Al-Qaida -- a complete lie!
The decision to publicize the memos was not political; it was the first step of purging ourselves of criminal behavior by public officials.
It's notable that the sins of King George listed in the Declaration did not approach the reprehensibility of the Bush/Cheney torture. Prosecute them for war crimes. Sadism and brutality are not legitimate responses even to 9/11 and other mass terrorism for a nation with the rule of law.
