A common belief held by Americans is that the United States' claimed exceptional-ism, demands their unconditional support for its serial wars.

In this podcast, Chuck Carlson discusses an in-depth article, "Why Does America Torture?" by Professor Alan Gilbert of the Denver University School of International Relations.
