Danner: We Are All Torturers Now

The New York Times > Opinion > Op-Ed Contributor: We Are All Torturers Now

Possibly the most interesting aspect of this piece is Danner's observation that "We have entered a new era" in the resolution of scandal and wrongdoing-- rather than come to some resolution through trials/hearings/apologies/punishments, a new paradigm of denial and willful blindness has taken hold- evidence of torture comes to light, the President states that the U.S. will not torture people, and the whole thing blows over. We really are no longer modern.
