Enhanced Interrogation Techniques
We agree with the 2016 Democratic Party Platform:
"We will always seek to uphold our values at home and abroad, not just when it is easy, but when it is hard."
"We agree with military and national security experts who acknowledge that torture is not an effective interrogation technique."
We agree with Our Revolution:
"The U.S. must never again embrace torture as a matter of official policy. In an increasingly brutal world, the wanton use of torture by the Bush administration simply meant we lost our moral standing to condemn others who engage in merciless behavior."
We agree with the Justice Democrats:
"Prosecute torturers and those who violated the Geneva Conventions, Nuremberg Tribunal, International law and US law. Defend habeas corpus and due process. Pardon whistleblowers like Edward Snowden. We shouldn’t be leading from behind on human rights; we must be the home of liberty. We should practice the values we preach."
