Now consider what we now know about whom we tortured under the torture program under Bush and Cheney. First off, we tortured 26 people who were cases of mistaken identity. We tortured 26 innocent people. This is so far outside any of the parameters that even Krauthammer allowed for that it beggars belief.
A post from Andrew Sullivan comparing a 2005 defense of torture with how it was actually carried out. Not only did we torture, we tortured some innocents.
