They Argued for Torture

June 10, 2004

Re "Memo Gave Bush Leeway on Torture," June 8: It is perverse to engage in torture in the guise of rationality; it is cowardly to engage in torture in the guise of authority. The memoranda prepared by Justice Department and Pentagon lawyers counseling the Bush administration on avoiding the prescriptions of the Geneva Convention and the international proscription against torture is the final bit of business demonstrating the utter illegitimacy of this presidency and the degree to which it would gladly turn all of us into "good Germans."
