How many of us voted for change in this past election? Will we change our sanctioning of torture, terror, and terrorists?
If so, then Donald Rumsfeld must be held accountable for his crimes against humanity. How can our country fight against terror around the world when we employ terrorist tactics ourselves? A bipartisan report from the Senate Armed Services Committee has denounced Rumsfeld for his authorship of policies that OK’d torture techniques at Guantanamo Bay and other facilities (12/12, A-4, “Top officials faulted in detainee abuses”). He has made a travesty of our stand for human rights worldwide. Will President Bush resist the urge to pardon him?
If not, in the words of Pogo, we have met the enemy, and he is us.
