“Brigadier General Patrick Finnegan, Dean of the Academic Board at West Point, wrote in a letter to the Editor of The New Yorker magazine [on May 3, 2010]: ‘…the pictures from Abu Ghraib [prison in Iraq] and the publicity surrounding Guantanamo, waterboarding, and other ‘enhanced interrogation techniques’ have created far more terrorists than most people understand. For a country that professes to stand for the rule of law and individual rights, we look like the worst kind of hypocrites.’ ”

 – M. Cherif Bassiouni, The Institutionalization of Torture by the Bush Administration, Pages xix-xx
