Please forgive us, we don’t know what was done.
Please forgive us, we didn’t know.
Could you ever forgive us?
I don’t know how you could.
I know this is no consolation.

Please forgive us, we didn’t know.
Could you ever believe that we didn’t know?
Please forgive us, we didn’t know.
I wouldn’t blame you if you never could, and you never will.

I cannot get this song out of my head.

Ever since I read Liss’s post at Shakesville this morning, I feel like the bottom has dropped out from my world, just a little bit. Not that I didn’t know in the background that rape and sexual assault were part of the not-torture tool kit, but to see the Obama administration write it off as not that serious or disturbing shatters what little hope I had left.
