The Schmidt Report and prisoner abuse

I can't say anything more than Andrew Sullivan does in his excellent wrap-up of the report (just keep scrolling and reading). Why oh why would any American want to abuse prisoners, apologize for that abuse and make excuses for it. And, as Andrew says, this policy is a direct line from the Gitmo and Abu Ghraib to the President as most military and civilian officials were against the change in policy.

Stunning. I think history will show this to be a low point in the history of America.
