"The Senate is considering Alberto Gonzales' nomination to become Attorney General, replacing John Ashcroft. Gonzales is the White House counsel notorious for opening the door to torture at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay prisons. In 2002, Gonzales wrote a memo to President Bush arguing the war on terror renders the Geneva Conventions "quaint" and "obsolete." Senators should view the Gonzales nomination skeptically, given this history."

Thank you, Mr. Soros for your analysis and accurate use of the word "torture."

Here's a little lesson on why words need to retain their meanings. A long time ago, (the 1970's) "racism" used to mean something quite evil and despicable. Now it means "opposes affirmative action." Nazi used to mean something horrible. Now it means "republican." The left has made itself into the boy who cried wolf. What will happen when the real racists and Nazis come? Will we yawn? What will happen when someone is actually tortured by American soldiers?
