Torture for Dummies

You will have read about the CIA’s guidelines for torturing prisoners. But for the full horror of the thing, go here. Every American should be at first ashamed and then furious to see 79 pages of this filth under the letterhead of the United States Department of Justice, signed by Principal Deputy Assistant Attorney General Steven G. Bradbury. Most Americans will not give a damn, however, which is what makes the rest of us fear for the Republic.

Currently reading one of Sinclair Lewis' masterpieces "It can't Happen Here. Unfortunately the book reads as prophetic.

Well, torture - if declared legal - carried out by highly trained personnel isn't torture at all. It's just a sophisticated interrogation technique.
