Jane Mayer: Black sites

The extent to which, under this administration, we as a nation have lost our moral compass, is documented in Jane Mayer's excellent article in the New Yorker, available online. It is absolutely sickening to realize that we have come to this pass as a society. I would hope that every candidate for office in both parties will be relentlessly queried as to whether they will repudiate this kind of use of torture by American officials once and for all. If not, they should be shunned and shamed back into private life, where they should retreat to some hole somewhere, because I hold it as absolute: civilized human beings do not commit or tolerate torture.
