Faith & Social Justice: In the spirit of Richard Overton and the 17th C. Levellers

Andrew Sullivan’s Open Letter to George W. Bush

I don’t agree with Sullivan’s just war premises, nor that the Iraq War ever met the criter of Just War Theory, not even initially. But this article, by someone who was, from 9/11/’01 to early 2004, one of Bush’s strongest supporters on foreign policy is well worth reading.  It is a devastating critique of torture policies and fairly good on the steps needed to extricate ourselves as a nation from these policies.  Take the time to read it carefully.

  1. I’ve just had a read of the letter, you’re right, it deserves careful consideration on the torture issues and disregard of jus in bello considerations.
