“History. It’s, like, deja vu all over again. I can’t tell you the number of times I have heard this statement in the past couple
of weeks: We shouldn’t treat the prisoners of war like that because we’re Americans
and Americans don’t do things like that. We’re better than that.”

“That’s a nice sentiment. And if it makes you feel better, keep saying it to yourself. But the fact is that, no, we’re not.
We’re not better than that. Never have been. It’s history.”
