American Samizdat

US interrogators have devised a new form of torture. It debases the democracy they claim to be defending.

By George Monbiot. Published in the Guardian 12th December 2006.

After thousands of years of practice, you might have imagined that every possible means of inflicting pain had already been devised. But you should never underestimate the human capacity for invention. United States interrogators, we now discover, have found a new way of destroying a human being.

US/Nazi torturers "have found a new way of destroying a human being," (a "new form of torture") - thanks to George Monbiot for remembering Jose Padilla, a US citizen. We should too. And that requires hard work, courage - nothing less than delegitimizing the entire system and bringing these fucking bastards to justice.
