Notice how these two articles sort of contradict each other.

In the first, sleep deprivation succeeded where water-boarding didn't..
(Which makes one wonder why they did it so often)

In the second,
"The CIA used the enhanced interrogation techniques on high-level
detainees at "black sites" or secret prisons outside the United States.

Critics, including some in Congress, say the tactics amounted to torture
on captured senior al Qaeda members and elicited little information.

But Rodriguez contends that the tactics were key to loosening the grip
of al Qaeda and, eventually, to finding and killing Osama bin Laden."

I will wish that was an anarchist one...

It's the old black beast of Italy, the Hydra of the lead years, and the
genoese head is the ugliest one....

Viva l' Italia,
