Now hail the torturer in chief.

Two significant events happened today regarding the horrors that the Bush administration visited on people who fell into its web via Afghanistan: the memos detailing the torture that the Bush administration used were released and Obama said that he wasn't going to prosecute the CIA people who applied the torture techniques to detainees. Obama's decision is shameful and is contrary to what he claims his regime stands for. Torture is a bigger issue than Bush. Any U.S. President who refuses to take the necessary steps to right the wrongs that have been perpetrated is an accessory to them, is complicit in the crimes, and is as disgraceful morally on the world stage.
