Rumsfeld authorized water torture
CNN |
"The Pentagon has declassified and will release as soon as Tuesday memos signed by Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld that critics argue authorized torture of detainees at the U.S. prison camp at Guantanamo Bay... Among the memos, Pentagon officials said, is a directive signed by Rumsfeld in October 2002 authorizing a technique called 'water boarding,' in which a prisoner is strapped down, immersed in water and made to feel as if he is going to drown. But officials insisted the technique was never used and that the authorization for it was rescinded in January 2003." [Bets, anyone?]

You want to talk about suffocating - it can't be much worse than suffering through a taxi ride with one of these guys and their goddamn inexplicable fondness for hanging fifteen stanky air fresheners from the rear view.
