Elizabeth de la Vega: Real DOJ Trial Attorneys on Torture
Former assistant US attorney Elizabeth de la Vega writes for Truthout, "If there is one thing the Bush administration is good at, it's talking points: simple, stupid slogans. And when it comes to torture, the theme du jour is that we are all too simple and too stupid to understand just what is and is not prohibited.... They are, plainly and simply, wrong. It is long past time for them to listen to what the real prosecutors in the Department of Justice have to say."
