President Obama released the memos on torture I wrote about yesterday. You can read his statement on why he is releasing them here, ending with, "The United States is a nation of laws. My Administration will always act in accordance with those laws, and with an unshakeable commitment to our ideals. That is why we have released these memos, and that is why we have taken steps to ensure that the actions described within them never take place again."
Amen to that.
