Torture White House

We sanction what we used to condemn

Sad, sad, sadThe image to right is a propaganda poster issued by the U.S. government in 1942 (National Archives page) to publicize the realities of Nazi brutality.

The painting in the poster is eerily similar to an image we're all too familiar with. Sadly, torture and brutality in places like Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo blurs the distinction between the war crimes of Nazi Germany and the torture sanctioned by our government.

America is now in the business of endorsing what we used to condemn. How in a million years is that not grounds for impeaching the regime who allowed it and, in fact, sanctioned it?
