"Let’s say this slowly: the Bush administration wanted to use 9/11 as a pretext to invade Iraq, even though Iraq had nothing to do with 9/11. So it tortured people to make them confess to the nonexistent link. There’s a word for this: it’s evil.”

Grandfather, look at our brokenness. We know that in all creation only the human family has strayed from the sacred way.
