The mounting evidence of what is being done to our "detainees" skewers this Bush pledge in his January 26 press conference: "No American will be allowed to torture another human being anywhere in the world!"[Emphasis added.]
Will there be enough of us to move Congress to force the president to act insidenot in contempt ofthe law? Or am I fantasizing?
