Quotable - "Torture Isn't Conservative"

Ken Adelman,  former chair of the Reagan-era Arms Control and Disarmament Agency:
"I'm having trouble figuring out why staunch conservatives aren't as outraged by the torture memos and practices as the American public. ... It's somewhat outrageous for real conservatives not to be outraged by all this. Conservatism has never been, and should not become now, the pro-torture movement...
Torture is not only immoral; it's not conservative. And conservatives shouldn't be defending it."
