Abu Ghraib Our Nation's Deepest Fall From Grace?

Ted Kennedy believes so and is discussing it over at Huffington Post. That for me is a tough one. If we want to start talking about Native American injustices, slavery, toppling leaders of foreign states and replacing them with puppets, Iran-Contra, supporting apartheid in South Africa, there are alot of other contenders. Torturing human beings is way high up there, but to our shame, it's a debatable question in my mind. We should be much better than this. We aren't. Those of us who watch American Idol while our government commits human rights abuses are partially culpable. We allow it.
