Torture and Transparency

It doesn’t matter that torture doesn’t provide accurate, actionable intelligence. It doesn’t even matter that it’s illegal, and a war crime. Torture is a moral abomination. A strong, clear light needs to be shone on what U.S. officials did, and those responsible need to be held accountable. President Obama’s desire to “turn the page” is essentially a failure to deal with a cancer that’s eating away at what this country is supposed to stand for.
