Defending Secrecy

Poulos wades into the torture debate:

Even someone who justifies the suffering of our victims or the corruption of our perpetrators cannot yet be finished. They must defend the secrecy; in so doing, they must defend trusting the government of a free and equal people to violate the terms of that people’s law, custom, and mores on terms which only the government is to set and know.

How can the country judge this theoretically acceptable?

By closing our eyes and walking. Fast.
