The World has Turned Upside Down.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder wrote a letter to the Russian government stating that we would not torture Eric Snowden if they turned him over to us. Professor Bill Black has a scathing post entitled Is it legal malpractice to fail to get Holder to promise not to torture your client. The U.S. of A. is supposed to be the good guys. What are we doing writing incredibly stupid letters like this to the Russians who must be laughing their asses off once they picked their lower jaws up off of the floor. Not torturing people should be implicit and assumed in any official foreign correspondence with another government. What is the world coming to?
Comments:
I think at a minimum Snowden would be kept in permanent solitary (as Manning was/is) in part to prevent Snowden talking secrets with ordinary cons and to protect him from cons.

Either way long term or permanent solitary is a form of torture.

BTW nice photo John :)
