    why torture exists, has always existed, will always exist. I also understand why the US must never, ever resort to torture or anything that closes on the blurry margins of inhumane treatment.

    I understand the nuances deeply, and I'm more than familiar with the history of the use of torture in this country and others.

    And I'm an average American with a voice backed only by a vote.

    Thank you, General, for being on the only side, the right side, the righteous side - if you will - of this issue.

    The future belongs to those who give the next generation reason for hope.
