HUFF N BLO BEYOTCH ON “TORTURE”
On Horiwood.Com we luv us some Ariana Huffington, aka The Huff N Blo Beyotch. Here are her comments today on the topic of Torture.
The way we respond to the revelations about the Bush administration’s use of torture will define the kind of country we are. It is a test of our courage and our convictions. So far, the media are not getting high marks. They can’t seem to shake their addiction to looking at every issue through the archaic prism of right vs. left. So we get Dan Balz saying that Obama’s release of the torture memos “has stirred a major controversy on the right and left” and that those on the left “are demanding that [Obama] acknowledge their point of view.” Since when is the need to adhere to the laws that govern us a left-wing “point of view”? Is Thou Shalt Not Kill a “point of view”? Isn’t torture one of those things where there really is no legitimate other side?
Do you agree, or disagree with The Huff N Blo Beyotch’s commentary on Torture?
