Experience is both a verb and a noun -- you have to do it to possess it

One must review past behavior in order to learn anything, whether as an individual or a nation.

Like I said yesterday.

And the drumbeat for America's moral and legal reconciliation continues:

=> Frank Rich today in NYT;

=> And Glen Greenwald yesterday at Salon.

How can we not look back at, and ponder, our behavior as a nation when it included acts of torture (including waterboarding) for which we prosecuted Japanese soldiers, resulting in their execution?
