Quotation for Today, Wednesday 1 July

01/07/2009

Before Bush-Cheney, the tortured around the world knew that there was a place that didn’t do this, that there was a human civilization bigger and better than this. No longer.  And this is Cheney’s signal contribution to the twenty-first century: he has made the world much, much safer for torture – by people with fewer scruples than David Addington. And those fighting for freedom around the world will be the foremost victims of the neocons’ deployment of the “dark side”.
