Reading this makes me feel sick.

They threatened to rape his family? WHAT THE HELL AMERICA

I'm hoping that the closing of Guantánamo Bay will, in fact, go through. It would be a start. I think that this administration definitely cares more than administrations past, although I wish they had the nerve to put their foot down and say, "No, we're doing this," and risk upsetting the people who want to see GB go on functioning. And as for when it started, well, who knows: these approaches in particular coalesced and probably saw their greatest use under Bush, but they're not new methods of torture...
