The horror...the sheer horror

Reuters almost made my eyes fall out, as I was rolling them so hard.

Former U.S. Army Brigadier General Janis Karpinski told Spain's El Pais newspaper she had seen a letter apparently signed by Rumsfeld which allowed civilian contractors to use techniques such as sleep deprivation during interrogation.

Who...the hell...cares?

"The methods consisted of making prisoners stand for long periods, sleep deprivation ... playing music at full volume, having to sit in uncomfortably ... Rumsfeld authorized these specific techniques."

There may even be unconfirmed reports of tickle torture exacted with a feather-duster. God Almighty, what a glorious waste of time this all is.

The Geneva Convention says prisoners of war should suffer "no physical or mental torture, nor any other form of coercion" to secure information.

Please read the actual document, you morons. Nowhere does said document protect members of a resistance who do not adhere to the rules of war, among them displaying a fixed sign of allegiance visible at a distance. Hence, no protections. None. In the words of Willie Wonka, "You get NOTHING! You LOSE! Good DAY sir!"

Why are we still crucifying Rumsfeld anyway? The man is stepping down, and we can all sleep better at night knowing there will be no more "having to sit uncomfortably" for those who want to kill us.

Jesus Christ. Find your brains for GOD'S SAKE people.
