Here's a poll asking Americans if they approve of their government committing one of the worst crimes against humanity and violating its own long-standing laws and treaty commitments.
Sadly, a majority said 'yes.'
I take some exception to the title "Good Germans." Not all Germans agreed with Hitler. Aside from that, it really is a terrible thing that my fellow Americans agree with torturing people. It's nothing less than demonic. There wouldn't be bombings were it not for the evil spirit invading the flesh and minds of people. We need to reverse that, not encourage it with torture. Wow, things really have gone downhill since the 1970's. Torture would have been roundly condemned back then.
