American officials never tire of lecturing others about how law-abiding they are.

“We do not do torture,” is an oft-repeated mantra of US officials in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary. When confronted with such evidence, they say it is not torture, only “enhanced interrogation” techniques. Such verbal sophistry apart, the US has become a society of lawless hoodlums that indulge in extra-judicial executions through drone attacks in other countries: Pakistan, Somalia and Yemen. Innocent people are killed, all in name of the “War on Terror”. It is a war of terror.
