 By using torture, we became the thugs our enemies say we are.

(SAN FRANCISCO)   I applaud the release of the Senate Torture Report and urge those responsible be held accountable.  The release of the Senate Torture Report reminds Americans that human torture is not only morally unacceptable – it is also a crime.

Unfortunately, too many Americans believe themselves superior to other countries and thus, anything we do to protect our country’s national interests, including torture, is somehow justifiable.  Our use of torture places us in the same company as history’s infamous torturers.  Waterboarding, for example, dates back to the Dark Ages.  By using torture, we lose any ideological advantage we might have — the promotion of democracy, freedom, and human rights.  By using torture, we became the thugs our enemies say we are.
