American Values & Torture - Go Together? Don't Think So

By Remy Benoit

An Editorial from The New York Times at Truthout On Torture and American Values.

And a piece by John Pope at The Times Picayune, of perhaps extreme irony, but perhaps hope. Mikhail Gorbachev visited New Orleans - yes, the former president of the Evil Empire, the author of Perestroika, winner of the 1990 Nobel Peace Prize, now head of The Gorbachev Foundation. Gorbachev vows revolution if levees don't improve.


Perhaps more irony From Kevin Peraino, Newsweek, at MSNBC 'Strong like Saddam'.
