Courage Speaks to Power Against Torture!

This type of activism takes courage (and money, too, apparently).

For what it's worth, I will not support an administration that tortures, condones torture, or engages in other extra-judicial tactics, in the myopically misguided assumption that this sort of abhorrent behavior actually makes us more secure. (hint hint: Mubarak's Egypt).

I hope the Obama administration can be inspired by this kind of courage, and step away from the hideous abuses of executive power administered over the past two decades. But if they want to swim in the muck, they can drown in it too.

It will be a great day when mature adults man the helms of leadership in this country. But I believe that wish has been begged for since before the days of Gilgamesh.
