“Detainees Describe C.I.A. Torture in Declassified Transcripts”



This is terrible.

It horrifies me.

It started with W’s administration.

The Guantánamo Bay detainees are being held indefinitely, without trial, as “prisoners of war.”

The war? The so-called War on Terror.

Note that (as indicated by the Times story) Donald Trump “has proposed reviving and expanding such techniques.”

New York Times reporter Charlie Savage is very good.
