Letter to the Editor
President Bush’s choice of Alberto Gonzales for Attorney General is a really bad decision. Alberto Gonzales was the one who wrote Bush’s pro torture memo that led to American sponsored torture and murder at Abu Ghraib prison.
If America is going to portray itself as a civilized nation it has to send the world a message that behaving like Nazi’s is something that we don’t condone. Alberto Gonzales who would be our chief law enforcement officer is someone who should be tried as a war criminal. He brings America down to the same level as the Muslim terrorists that we are at war with.
Torture is just plain wrong – period. You don’t torture people. Alberto Gonzales doesn’t seem to understand this. What kind of a country do we live in where people who believe in torture run the country? Alberto Gonzales makes us a nation of barbarians. Are enemies have won when we become like them.
