Jan. 11th marks the anniversary of when the U.S. opened its torture camp at Guantanamo. Bush claims "the U.S. does not torture" as he orders the destruction of videotapes that document the C.I.A. torturing prisoners. Leading Democrats like Nancy Pelosi were aware of these crimes and remained silent -- but WE CANNOT.

Torture is emblematic of the Bush agenda and the direction it is taking society.
