Seen on Digg, in a discussion about how Bush is outright lying about torture being used on “certain detainees”:

I love this new spin term for torture: “alternative interrogation method”. That’s like calling beheadings “alternative medical procedures”.

It may seem funny, but at the same time it’s a sad commentary on how the President stands before our nation and says, “I’ve said to people we don’t torture. And we don’t.” Yet on the very same day, it’s announced that certain people who have been held as “enemy combatants” were most certainly tortured, and will soon be given the privilege of a trial without a jury, without fair legal representation, and without the opportunity to even see all of the evidence presented against them.

How long can this continue?
