Let the world change you... and you can change the world

Another Edition Of Bizarro World

When I came across this editorial in the New York Times titled “Honoring Those Who Said No To Torture”, I did a double-take to make sure I wasn’t actually reading The Onion.  Has it really come to this, that we honor people for simply obeying the frigging law?  Hey there, New York Times — I didn’t rob a bank today!  How about honoring me?

Here’s a far better idea — let’s prosecute the bastards that did the torturing!  It’s illegal to torture prisoners, period.  Nothing complicated here.  And both Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld were directly involved in such an act.  Hell, Dick Cheney has actually bragged about it.  Where are the editorials calling for the prosecution of these war criminals?  That would be the honorable thing to do.
