Do Beatings Count As Torture?
By Cassandra D
"Guards at Guantanamo Bay bragged about beating detainees and described it as common practice, a Marine sergeant said in a sworn statement obtained by The Associated Press."
Read it and weep.
And here's a nice quote from Bush:
"If I catch anyone who leaks in my government," Bush tells Chrétien in March, 2002, "I would like to string them up by the thumbs -- the same way we do with prisoners in Guantanamo."
Shall we all break into a round of "Proud to Be an American" now?
