Land of The Fragrantly Violating

The San Fransisco Chronicle Writes that the US government has written a new set of polices for supposed Terrorist detainees. One of the things that has been written out of this new policy over the old one is the prevention of "humiliating and degrading treatment". It is believed that by allowing this kind of treatment better information will be gained from detainees.

There is much agreement that information gained from torture victims is unreliable. Many of the people in Guantanamo Bay are there because their names came up during torture sessions. This has to stop.
