24. Kudos to Bill Moyers for a fine interview segment. Just when I thought
I had seen it all and had no further capacity to be outraged, I saw the incredibly moving and thought-provoking interview with Mayer.

The part that got to me yesterday was the segment in which Mayer outlined the active participation of doctors and psychologists in the torture regime. The way Mayer expressed it, the doctors and shrinks were actively participating in the torture regime, going so far as to resuscitate a detainee whose vital signs were 'cratering,' only so he could be further tortured.

At this point, I am somewhat sorry to tell DU, I no longer plan to vote for Obama in November. Sorry, but I now plan to vote 3rd party, probably McKinney and the Greens. I do not take this decision lightly, having voted Dem in every presidential and off-year election since 1980. But anyone with even a shred of decency would be calling for war crimes trials to convene immediately, not saying that no prosecutions are envisioned and that country should 'move on' (the thrust of Obama's remarks on the subject to date).
