The camps were, he says, the reason the Americans began to feel they were on a crusade.

Bob Herbert's Recent Truths And Their Consequences Bob Herbert is the first member of the mass media to recognize a crucial truth. To wit, Bush wants no retroactive liability for torture -- a felony -- because he is guilty of this crime.
