Bush Lied

As today's Washington Post editorial makes clear, George W. Bush lied when he said the United States does not torture.

For some reason I simply cannot fathom, Americans do not care. They care when a president lies about a blow job, but not about torturing people. This is ultimately a stain on us all.

Nietzsche wrote:
"He who fights with monsters might take care lest he thereby become a monster. And if you gaze for long into an abyss, the abyss gazes also into you."
You could tell, within about a week of 9/11, that the US would make a mess of it. Nothing else would suffice. It was inevitable. Now look how stupid we look.
