133. Then you hold public trials so the people know
what is going on. You severely punish anyone who engages in any kind of torture, and you prosecute those who have done so in the past.

And you do NOT delay those trials for years and years so that children who were kidnapped by this government are adults before they ever see any justice.

And yes, we should let them all go. Nothing ANY of them has done compares to what this country has done, both before and after 9/11.

Once we invaded their countries, they were perfectly within their rights to fight those invaders, just as we would.

This whole mess is such a stain on this country that it will probably take decades, if not longer, before we can overcome the harm it has done.

No decent person can in any way defend this, and they don't. This country has lost so much moral authority as a result of these crimes against humanity that it may be impossible for it to regain any respect again in our lifetimes.

Otoh, if this administration had begun investigations of the war criminals, the world could have concluded that the Bush gang were an aberration, not the norm for this country. But now, with this administration continuing the same criminal behavior, ignoring war crimes etc. the world has to conclude that this really is who we are.
