We Are All Torturers Now

Mark Danner is convinced that the inevitable confirmation of Gonzales will give all Americans ownership in the torture policies he helped this administration devise, institute and justify. I agree. We will all be accountable for the use of tactics such as these witnessed by an FBI counter terrorism specialist at Guantanamo:

On a couple of occasions, I entered interview rooms to find a detainee chained hand and foot in a fetal position to the floor, with no chair, food or water. Most times they had urinated or defecated on themselves, and had been left there for 18-24 hours or more...When I asked the M.P.'s what was going on, I was told that interrogators from the day prior had ordered this treatment, and the detainee was not to be moved. On another occasion...the detainee was almost unconscious on the floor, with a pile of hair next to him. He had apparently been literally pulling his own hair out throughout the night.

Will we ever learn the cosmic lesson that what ever we do unto another we are doing unto ourselves or whomever else we hold most dear whether father, mother, child or...Jesus.
