New AG on torture

Incoming AG Eric Holder on torture and other Bush policies:

“The term ‘Leader of the Free World’ is bestowed upon the United States president because of the  civil liberties and the rights we guarantee our people. It comes from the power of our values as a nation. For the last six years, the position of Leader of the Free World has been largely vacant. We have ceded much of our moral high ground, which our own military leaders will tell you is a vital asset in our struggle against terrorism.”

From last July. Recommended viewing.
