The Torture Never Stops

…is the title of an old Frank Zappa song, but it seems to fit American movies at the moment, with the Hostel and Saw franchises and Captivity. Apparently the TV show ’24’ features a bit too. Wonder whether it’s a reaction to the official government policies of the country?

Are you suggesting that the American Government would resort to torture in order to gain information? No way!! They send them to other countries that allow it…sort of like contracting out 🙁

True, they do a fair bit of that. But they also do a fair bit of ‘we mistreat people in all sorts of excruciatingly painful ways but because we don’t define it as torture therefore it’s not torture’ stuff.
