CIA Secret Prisons: What Was Done On Our Behalf

Larry Cox, Executive Director of Amnesty International, USA, in a letter to the New Yorker (Sept. 17):

The interrogation methods within these prisons were carefully designed to cause immeasurable
suffering, violating the Geneva Conventions and a battery of human-rights
standards. Whatever confessions they resulted in should not, and likely will
not, stand in a court of law. The abuses...are shocking, but what is unknown is
how long it will take all of us to demand that Congress and the Administration
deliver the United States back to the ranks of nations seeking to uphold human
rights rather than violate them.

When indeed, will we cease being "Good Americans," and demand that this country return to the standards of decency that we have always claimed to represent as a nation?
