Yes, they do need to be told.

Leahy to Gonzales, from that hearing in the last post:

It is beneath the dignity of this country, a country which has always been a beacon for human rights, to send somebody to another country to be tortured.

We’re a country with a great tradition of protecting individual liberties and rights. You take an oath of office to do that. I take an oath of office to do that.

You really need to start with the ABCs when you talk to these people, don’t you?

It can be hard to know what to say in the torture debate. Not because the evidence of our country’s history and traditions doesn’t unequivocally reject it. But because this is so evident that being forced to say it is awkward and surreal.

Well, we are forced to say it. And they do need to be told. That’s our vision of America. Now let’s hear theirs.
