    Thanks for making my evening with this post, but more so for the link to the power of poop story.

    Also, Seymour Hersh reported on the murder of detainees and many other aspects of the torture program back in 2004 in Chain of Command, and pretty much everything he wrote in that book has been shown to be the truth. So I’ve been stalking him in search of wisdom…if you’re interested here’s what he’s saying now:

    Hear about the covert anti-Iranian program…what are the chances that if he didn’t break this story when he did we’d be at war with them now?

    I recommend watching the Seymour Hersh interview, if for no other reason than the follow-up video is for the Greek edition of Naked News. I’m clearly following all the wrong news sites.

    You raise an important point about all the detainee deaths. That aspect of the torture program is not getting discussed on the teevee debate shows AT ALL. Because then how can you justify the slap on the wrist that everyone is so eager to administer once you acknowledge this:

    A simple fact is being overlooked in the Bush-era torture scandal: the number of cases in which detainees have been tortured to death. Abuse did not only involve the high-profile cases of smashing detainees into plywood barriers (“walling”), confinement in coffin-like boxes with insects, sleep deprivation, cold, and waterboarding. To date approximately 100 detainees, including CIA-held detainees, have died during U.S. interrogations, and some are known to have been tortured to death.

    A review of homicide cases, however, shows that few detainee deaths have been properly investigated. Many were not investigated at all. And no official investigation has looked into the connection between detainee deaths and the interrogation policies promulgated by the Bush administration…

    The bottom line is that many detainee homicides in Iraq and Afghanistan were the direct result of approval and orders from the highest levels of government, and that high officials in the government are accomplices.

    Just keep telling yourself: “it was a few bad apples…”
