Quote of the week

From Sojourners:

History will not judge us kindly.

- then U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft, quoted during a 2004 White House briefing during which CIA interrogation methods were graphically described. According to The Washington Post, the Bush administration issued a pair of secret memos to the CIA in 2003 and 2004 that explicitly endorsed the agency's use of interrogation techniques such as waterboarding against al Qaeda suspects.

This breaks my heart. It really does.
