That’s the question Alan Dershowitz asked on an NPR interview this morning. And his tone of voice when he asked the question clearly showed it was meant as an rhetorical question – that no one would seriously advocate that the people who’ve actually been prosecuted for torture – like the grunts at Abu Ghraib – were acting alone.
So I thought I’d ask here. Do any Dopers wish to maintain that the Bush Admin. stands steadfastly AGAINST torture, and is shocked … SHOCKED … at what its people are doing in places like Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo?
