Pssst ... Nobody Loves a Torturer

Fareed Zakaria says what should not have to be said in Newsweek. We torture prisoners in Saddam's old house of pain at Abu Ghraib and then we set up a Soviet style Gulag while Bush righteously claims that the "evil-doers hate our freedoms." I have zero respect for the members of the Bush administration who allowed this to happen.
Nov. 14, 2005 issue - As President Bush's approval ratings sink at home, the glee across the globe rises. He remains the most unpopular political figure in the world, and newspapers from Europe to Asia are delighting in his troubles. Last week's protests in Mar del Plata were happily replayed on televisions everywhere. So what is the leader of the free world to do? Well, I have a suggestion that might improve Bush's image abroad—and it doesn't require that Karen Hughes go anywhere. It would actually help Bush at home as well, and it has the additional virtue of being the right thing to do. It's simple: end the administration's disastrous experiment with officially sanctioned torture.
