Widespread torture by US

Amnesty International has published a report alleging "widespread" torture by the US in detention centers around the world.
Torture and inhumane treatment are "widespread" in U.S.-run detention centers in Afghanistan, Iraq, Cuba and elsewhere despite Washington's denials, Amnesty International said on Wednesday.
Andrew Sullivan has more.
Whatever else this administration has done, whatever other mistakes it has made, this abandonment of long-standing American honor and decency in the military is an unforgivable offense.
