In a new Amnesty International advertisement that will apparently start running tomorrow, horror writer Stephen King has published an open letter to President Obama asking him to rethink his position on investigating Bush Administration torture:
“I understand your reluctance to support an independent commission to investigate acts of torture committed by U.S. interrogators during the years since 9/11/01; there is a powerful urge to let indecent acts stay buried, lest they further besmirch our already tattered reputation in the court of world opinion.
We did things in the heat of our outrage that must not be repeated. We allowed frightened leaders to commit acts that will come back to haunt us if they are not examined. Until this boil of secrecy is lanced, the infection will remain. “
