The Supressed Facts: Death by Torture

Read “The Supressed Facts: Death by Torture” by Glenn Greenwald.

If you’re not going to call it torture, but over 100 detainees died during the process, then what do you call it? And if this isn’t torture, then what is torture? We know when other governments commit human rights violations, but what can our government not do?

In the meantime, it all — the continued indefinite detention without trial, the secrecy, and impunity — has become Obama policy.

    another good post

  2. And if this isn’t torture, then what is torture?

    This is one of my problems with the law.

    What is the legal definition of torture? Does one even exist? If so, why isn’t marriage part of the definition?

    If anything should be used to define torture, marriage should definitely be the fundamental standard of what torture is and can be.

    Legal or not, marriage = cruel and unusual punishment/torture.

    Marriage is a fine institution, for those people who like “institutions”.

    (you say institution, I say mental)

    Now you tell … I would have voted for Hillary

  4. i think torture is like bamboo shoots in your fingernails..and setting them on fire. Also, like hamsters in the butt hole trying to find their way out and like firecrackers tied to your nads or zomzin.

  5. Hillary would have been no better than Chairman Maobama, and possibly worse …

    The problem comes from “professional politician” … and expecting them to care.

    I mean that Hillary had more experience with torture having perfected the art of staying married to a guy like Bill…

    Gran Huja, you mean like Abu Ghraib torture as opposed to Guantanamo torture?

  8. I mean that Hillary had more experience with torture having perfected the art of staying married to a guy like Bill…
