after bin laden

now we have to listen to republican assholes crediting torture for the demise of bin laden --- i want my country back, a country that automatically, without question, would never consider torturing prisoners of war, whether you want to call them that or not

Should any American soldier be so base and infamous as to injure any [prisoner]. . . I do most earnestly enjoin you to bring him to such severe and exemplary punishment as the enormity of the crime may require. Should it extend to death itself, it will not be disproportional to its guilt at such a time and in such a cause… for by such conduct they bring shame, disgrace and ruin to themselves and their country.” - George Washington, charge to the Northern Expeditionary Force, Sept. 14, 1775
