The American Public Supports Torture … Because They Don’t Know THIS

New polls show that – even after the Senate torture report showed that torture is unnecessary and doesn’t work – Americans still think torture is necessary and works.

Why?

Because they still don’t know the truth … because the mainstream media has hidden it from them. Specifically, Americans still believe that torture works to produce helpful intelligence that helps keep us safe.

Americans wouldn’t support torture if they knew the following facts, proven beyond any doubt:

  • The detainees held up as “poster boy” justifications for torture actually prove the opposite

(Note: Other polls reach very different conclusions about Americans' acceptance of torture.)
