You Wonder Where They Got It?

Great article in the New York Times today about torture and how the US got so good at it.

We learned from the Soviet Union. You know, that great, big country that imploded on itself and split into all these little pieces? That one. The example should be heartening to those states' rights types.

What Econo-Girl wants to know is if torture is against core American beliefs, why is the Vice President wanting to keep torture as an option for certain government agencies? And WHY isn't anyone asking the President that?

SHHHHHH! Good Americans never question the President, and his lap dog George Bush.

Thinking like you do is a good way to end up on the "Do not fly" list, or maybe vanish off to some secret CIA jail for "questioning".

Also, having a secret CIA file makes it harder to get a federal job.

Oh Iggy, the way the different Federal agencies talk to one another, I would be safe until retirement.
