    in torturing people in the name of fighting terrorism, what moral authority does the U.S. have right now to indict Chuckie Taylor for this?  Mind you, I absolutely think he should be indicted by someone; but given Abu  Ghraib, our practice of shipping terror suspects off to third-world countries to be tortured, our own treatment of Jose Padilla etc., I ask again, where is our moral authority here?
