Teens to Bush: "We do not want America to represent torture."

This is a follow up to the item, Mari vs. Bush: TKO to the Kid, which I posted here on Saturday. This morning Amy Goodman of Democracy Now interviewed Mari & another Presidential Scholar, Leah Anthony Libresco, about the White House meeting they had with President Bush in the White House. I think the additional information the two young women share in the interview is very revealing -- & somehow also hopeful on this Independence Day in these dark times.
