He totally gets it:
The moral question is not simply of degree - how widespread and systematic is this kind of inhumanity? It is of kind: is this the kind of behavior more associated with despots than with democracies? Of course it is. When a country starts treating its prisoners like animals, it has lost its moral bearings; and, in the case of the United States, is also breaking its own laws (and, in this case, the president has declared himself above the law). … I'm sick of hearing justifications that the enemy is worse. This is news? This is what now passes for analysis? … This administration - by design, improvisation, desperation, arrogance, incompetence, and willful blindness - has enabled this to occur. They must be held accountable until this cancer is rooted out for good. It has metastasized enough already.
