January 11th marks the anniversary of when the U.S. opened its torture camp at Guantanamo. Bush claims “ the U.S. does not torture” as he orders the destruction of videotapes that document the C.I.A. torturing prisoners. Torture is emblematic of the Bush agenda and direction it is taking society. At a time when no "viable candidate" is calling for the immediate repeal of the Military Commissions Act or the Patriot Act, it is on the people to bring these crimes to a halt.
