The Old America
Via Andrew Sullivan, this is an American poster from World War II. It used to be that torture was something that America used to provide distinction from from its enemies. No longer.
We need to make a choice: will we tacitly abide torture by sparing from punishment those who perpetrated it? Or will we make examples of them of how torture is henceforth and forever anathema to this country?
