It seems to me that over the last few years we haven't had to complain as it has been sadly evident that our troops were tortured upon capture and during incarceration.
This is a sad day for those of us in the service who believed that because we held ourselves to a higher standard of behavior we expected that our CIC would as well. Regardless of the legal mumbo jumbo spewed out to defend that outrageous supposition that he is above that law, the laws were created to keep our GIs safe from torture. Although it hasn't always worked there was always the hope that it would. From now on it's going to be gloves off, bare knuckled, no rules, anything goes. For if he as President is above the law, then so are all the others.
