"Aggressive interrogation methods"


Craig Murray reads the torture memos:

Torture and the Banality of Evil
As you look at their careful discussion of how to characterise different levels of pain inflicted on shackled and helpless captives, you are in the crazed world of Dr Mengele. It is obvious even to the most unqualified person that what they are discussing is, to any reasonable person in any normal definition, torture. And that their legal arguments are continually strained to breaking point. The acknowledgement that waterboarding induces "Fear of imminent death by drowning" but argument that this can be "contextualized", would be laughably bad if it were not so appalling.
