Nicholas Kristof has a very powerful column out today that highlights our torture and detainment of an Arab journalist at our Guantánamo Bay prison. This entire issue is almost too difficult to consider. It simply makes me nauseous. I couldn’t agree more with Kristof’s conclusion:
To stand against torture and arbitrary detention is not to be squeamish. It is to be civilized.
Check out the National Religious Campaign Against Torture’s website and sign their petition against our country’s policy of torture.
