Those who defend the Bush administration?s use of torture insist ? incorrectly -- that it is a necessary measure in the interest of our national security. Can they also countenance torture carried out by U.S. personnel in the interests of the Communist Chinese government?

Justice Department Inspector General Glenn Fine has documented that in early 2002, U.S. military interrogators at Guantanamo Bay used various forms of abuse ? such as sleep and food deprivation, as well as confinement in extreme heat or cold ? to ?soften up? detainees for interrogation by Chinese officials. Those who didn?t cooperate were sent to solitary confinement as punishment.

The subjects were Uighurs, part of a severely persecuted Muslim population in northern China . Some Uighurs have resorted to terrorism, but the tactics used by Beijing against the separatists have been terroristic as well.

Not only has our government institutionalized torture, it?s been happy to work as a torture subcontractor for the world?s largest Communist regime.

Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
