America's Shame

Arguably we've created our own little gulag down at Gitmo; turns out we're putting the real gulag back in business as well:

The CIA has been hiding and interrogating some of its most important al Qaeda captives at a Soviet-era compound in Eastern Europe, according to U.S. and foreign officials familiar with the arrangement.

The secret facility is part of a covert prison system set up by the CIA nearly four years ago that at various times has included sites in eight countries, including Thailand, Afghanistan and several democracies in Eastern Europe, as well as a small center at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba, according to current and former intelligence officials and diplomats from three continents.

For "interrogating" you can probably substitute "torturing." I have no sympathy for al Queda, but this kind of insanity will only breed more and worse forms of terror against America and Americans. We are descending to the same depths as our enemies.

We used to hang people for this. Now we do it ourselves. Shame.
