“The debate about torture goes to the very heart of what this country [the USA] stands for. Do we want to be the nation imagined by the signers of the Declaration of Independence, a nation with 'a decent respect to the opinions of mankind,' committed to a vision of human dignity and unalienable rights, limited government and the rule of law? Or would we rather bring back the methods of the Spanish Inquisition?”
