It may make you pinch yourself and wonder if you’re dreaming, but yes, this is a Republican congressman admitting that America tortures, and defending the same. On record, at a hearing, in the Capitol.

Unlike George Bush, Dick Cheney, and George Tenet, Rohrabacher has the respect for himself to defend the position he actually holds, instead of a twisted fiction.

Frankly, his arguments are weighty. I don’t see any way to rebut him, unless you are willing to say that in a free society, sometimes we must place freedom above individual security. And that is my position.
