This week the Senate Intelligence Committee released a report on torture. It is shocking to read how our country tortured our enemies.
I agree with General George Washington who spoke out against the torture of British prisoners even though the British were torturing our soldiers.
I agree with Senator John McCain, who was tortured by the Vietnamese, who said this week,
“When we fight to defend our security we fight also for an idea…that all men are endowed by the Creator with inalienable rights. Our enemies act without conscience. We must not.”
This torture of prisoners dishonors all Americans.
