"Yet, I never heard anyone talking about, "Should we torture Russian spies, if we capture them, to find out what they were doing. Should we have a Guantanamo Bay for Russian spies".
I never heard that; It just wasn't part of America at that time. It's why, for me, to be in this country, and to hear people talking about: "'The Torture Question'. When did it become a QUESTION?"
Because I thought it was a medieval concept that we've thrown off. I thought human dignity, no matter what a person did, they were entitled to be protected in their body. That's what I thought this country was about. So what went wrong here? "
