Subject: re: Ex-C.I.A. Officer Charged in Information Leak
To the Editor:
Now that we've established that our DoJ is willing to prosecute an officer of our CIA to protect the CIA's secrets, who has the spine to do the same to protect our constitutional right or to enforce our treaty obligations? We've established that men were waterboarded while in U.S. custody, that waterboarding is torture, that torture violates both our statutes and our treaty obligations and that it is in our president's job-description to "see that these Laws be faithfully executed". Is there some subtle reason that I should trust a president in his second term of office to do what he disdained to do in his first?
