Bob Schieffer's commentary on today's Face The Nation looks at the growing CIA torture tape scandal and notes Edward R. Murrow's belief that sometimes it's not our actions that do the most damage, it's the message we send when we act inappropriately that can truly do the most harm.

Schieffer: "Is THAT our message to the world? That we are a government of laws except when it is inconvenient? If so, then what was done in the name of security has greatly harmed security. Weapons keep our enemies at bay, but our real security risks are whether the rest of the world comes to share our values, or the values of those who oppose us."
