Shepard Smith: "We are America! We do not fucking torture!"

By Michael J.W. Stickings

It was on Colbert last night, and it's been making the rounds. Here's Fox News' Shep Smith taking a definitively un-conservative line on torture.

Of course, he's wrong. America does torture. Or, at least, it did, under Bush. And it's not like Smith is arguing, as some conservatives are (like his colleague Bill O'Reilly), that waterboarding, say, isn't torture. Smith is pretty clear that even if it worked -- it meaning torture, the enhanced interrogation techniques -- it's wrong, always.
