Torture and the AFM
We have become a land of torturers. I pray the next administration can begin to reverse this terrible slide. Unfortunately, it slowly becomes clearer just how far down the slope we’ve come, covered in mud and blood. The Army Field Manual (AFM) is often cited as the standard to which we should return. Yet Appendix M of the AFM allows for a form of isolation that may be considered torture in itself. Who are we? I think it will take more than Obama to fix this one. We will all have to decide and take a stand. Who are we?
