I have previously argued that failure to prosecute the officials who ordered torture will undermine the national security of the United States.
Today, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff expressed concern that Bush administration torture may now be used against U.S. troops for years to come - echoing the statements of John McCain.
Please think this through . . .
If we prosecute Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Rice and company for torture and hold them accountable, we will show that we do not support torture as a nation. So others will be less likely to use torture against our troops in the future.
