Obama Confronts Torture Policy in Prime Time


www.truthout.org

The East Room, the White House - Under the spotlight of his third prime-time press conference, on his 100th day in office, President Barack Obama was unequivocal in his rejection of torture on moral and ethical grounds and said specifically that waterboarding is an illegal torture technique.

"What I've said - and I will repeat - is that waterboarding violates our ideals and our values. I do believe that it is torture. I don't think that's just my opinion; that's the opinion of many who've examined the topic. And that's why I put an end to these practices," Obama said.

Well this is all well and good, Obama admits that torture is wrong and illegal awesome... Now how about indicting the responsible people for these crimes against humanity? I still see nothing about this going on. Just a bunch of bs coming out a puppets mouth trying to make an ugly situation look ok. Too bad that doesn't mean anything...
