so you'd like to torture...

have at it! says the u.s. senate. here's what dahlia lithwick has to say:

At the time, we referred to Abu Ghraib as a "scandal." The images were a searing reproach to virtually any American with a soul and a conscience. With a handful of sick exceptions, people who could agree on nothing else could agree that this was an unacceptable way to treat prisoners—regardless of who they were, what they were accused of, or where they were being held. But in hindsight, Abu Ghraib wasn't a scandal for the Bush administration. It was a coup. Because when the Senate passes the president's detainee bill today, we will, as a country, have yet more evidence that yesterday's disgrace is today's ordinary, and that—with a little time and a little help from the media—we can normalize almost anything in the span of a few short years....

please wake me up in a few years if this reign of terror is over. or when we have moved to canada to live with my pal frodo. and naked apes, please don't ever talk to me about the "wonders of humanity." you have used them to justify torturing one another. not even the goddamn cats are so evil.

If it were physically possible for me to bang my head repeatedly against a wall from frustration and rage, I would do so. Sigh. If only we could send the collective neutered testicles of the nation's dogs to Congress in the hopes that the reps and senators would have the balls to actually stand up for what is right.
