Tom Tomorrow has an excellent cartoon about the torture and the (Republican) party line on it. I have to say though that I'm still astonished at why this is not a big deal. The United States decides that it's going to invade a bunch of countries in the name of "freedom" and it then proceeds to use torture as a method of obtaining freedom. We don't even know who the victims are. Are they all terrorists, or at least friends of terrorists? But it doesn't matter, the whole damn thing gets explained away. And besides, the Americans are serving them yummy chicken dinners, or something. Here, have some more chicken with your dog attacks.
