Torture

So, Obama admitted that the US tortured people as part of the War On Terror. Now, everyone, conservatives and liberals alike are up in arms and acting outraged.

Fuck off. Seriously, fuck off.

It's been clear for at least a decade that we were torturing people. Was it somehow better when the president didn't talk about it? Anyone out there who thinks  it's a revelation that we tortured people is out of their fucking minds.

If anything it 's a good thing that the president is willing to admit that we did some shitty things. In times of war every country always does shitty things, but most of them deny it.

I'd much rather governments admit it then hide from it. Particularly since its been common knowledge for so long.
