Bush and Cheney took Saddam's Abu Ghraib and made it a torture zone under American control. They took Soviet sites in Eastern Europe and revived their record of torture, under the American flag. Bagram was part of a pattern. And people wonder why a person untainted by the past should be CIA director.
Over the past eight years America became what it once despised most. This cancerous malaise is not yet incurable but it certainly is life-threatening.  Will we ever remove this dreadful stain for our reputation?
