The Obama administration is following Bush's lead by unilaterally rewriting the Geneva Conventions, presumably to allow it to continue exploiting prisoners of war for their supposed intelligence value.
Obama recently ratified continuation of the U.S. rendition policy. Amazingly, I just received a recording from the near-future of an interrogation conducted under the new kinder, gentler rules. Let's listen in.
When our nation's founders ratified the Bill of Rights 217 years ago today, they knew that justice could not be served in secret, and that punishment doled out in the shadows inexorably leads to illegitimacy.
This question needs to be asked of the president-elect: do you plan to denounce and renounce these extra-Constitutional ways of doing business, and the illegal policies that resulted, before you take office?
