I started this blog because I was sick at what the US was doing. The first post was on this horrible topic. I’d like to repeat one point.
At that point, it no longer looked like the US might step back from the brink, but even then I assumed they would at least pretend to respect human rights.
The US has just gone over that line. The head of state is supporting torture, out loud. Obama. Won’t be prosecuting anyone because, because, because.
[The Geneva Convention and US law] specifically bars any exception in the case of national emergency. Not to prosecute because of such an emergency is therefore to end the Geneva Conventions – which is what Obama has effectively done.
