Torture, the American way...

"Believe Me, It’s Torture"


Yup, that's Christopher Hitchens being tortured. I don't always agree with the guy but he's spot on with this one.

That this hideous act is happening in our names makes me want to spell American with a lower case "a" at the front. The shame of suborning torture should never be forgotten. The fact that we are most likely doing this to dozens of people merely because they fit some ridiculous federally established profile for a terrorist is equally shameful - in other words, they are all innocent and yet we do not believe them. Instead, we are torturing them and holding them captive.

What it means to be the U.S.A. is quickly being watered down into oblivion. And it's not a simulation, it's real.
