The United States Practices Torture

So says the FBI.

``I did observe treatment that was not only aggressive but personally very upsetting,'' one agent wrote, describing seeing a man left in a 100-degree room with no ventilation overnight. ``The detainee was almost unconscious on the floor with a pile of hair next to him. He had apparently literally been pulling his own hair out throughout the night.'

That's torture. Leaving a man overnight to bake in an oven is torture. And there are still people who defend the indefensible, and others who deny that the United States tortures prisoners. They call themselves conservatives; I call them sadists.
