    And there are principles.

    The various protections in the Constitution and its Amendments are an attempt to codify into law, a set of principles.

    The absence of the coded law doesn't exempt one from the ethical compulsion of the principles.

    Unfortunately, this rather straightforward truth is not understood by the vast majority of human beings, including almost everybody in the US government.

    To put the torture behind us is, inevitably, to put it in front of us.
