Letter to the Editor
Cheney says that a “dunk in water” is a “no-brainer for me” then tries to claim later that trying to drown someone isn’t torture, that it’s not water boarding. The Republican Congress, after John McCain sold us out, gave Bush the power to torture without the Bush administration having any idea what torture is. We can’t pretend that torture is not what it clearly is. We’ve all seen the pictures of Abu Ghraib where our troops were torturing people for nothing more than amusement. Abu Ghraib is now legal under the laws that Republicans just passed. Being an American with legalized torture is like what it must have been to be a German with Hitler as its leader. Torture is just plain evil and we have to rise up against it.
