Barack Obama himself gave a pretty clear indication in an interview with ABC a few days ago about just where he stands on the issue:
"Vice President Cheney I think continues to defend what he calls extraordinary measures or procedures and from my view waterboarding is torture. I have said that under my administration we will not torture."
Amen to that. I've felt constrained to write a fair bit about torture in the past few years, unfortunate but necessary.
It will be good to have a US back that doesn't make me want to upchuck. I hope I can still write this in four years.
