The only thing we need to make clear about torture is: It is used by tyrants to put fear into the

People.

There is no debate about "usefulness" Torture has never
and was never intended to generate useful intelligence.

It did not come about in a "Fear Response" to 9/11; it was and is a calculated measure
to stifle dissent just as all the "Security LEAK" prosecutions are.

We can't be distracted by discussions about "terror attacks averted" there were none.

The only thing that will keep President Shit-for-brains-future-Pres from torturing is
if we investigate indict and prosecute everyone who ordered facilitated or carried out TORTURE.

I say start at the TOP GWB Cheney Rummy Rice Gonzo et al.

If they are so sure of their innocence let's buy them all a ticket to the word court.

3. There should be no debate about the usefulness of torture, so of course the mass media complicit

in letting it happens only want to talk about that, they avoid talking about the actual physical evil, because it is their only plausible defence to evil....that the evil prevented even greater evil.

5. Everyone knows what is in Room 101.

 

What is in Room 101 is the worst thing in the world. In your case, Khalid, that happens to be water.

6. And the ongoing mowing down of the citizenry by the kkkops

 

serves the same purposes. It's all part of the same mindset.
