Trump’s assertion that torturing terrorists by simulating drowning is “too soft” came the very same day that he started to walk back his call for a “total and complete shutdown of Muslims entering the United States” So it seems like one of Donald Trump’s biggest complaints with the Bush and Cheney approach to fighting terror is that they didn’t go far enough in violating the Geneva Convention. So – do the Republicans really want to go back to the Bush Doctrine and bring back the human rights violations that turned us into an international pariah? Crystal Wright, Sarah Badawi, & Charles Sauer join Thom Hartmann to discuss this.
