Another nail in America's coffin

I found this through Gareth's Journal. I'm surprised that more hasn't been made of this on this side of the Atlantic. I think that it's a huge, not to mention, immensely disturbing, step. So staff at Guantanamo Bay complain that normal interrogation tactics were not eliciting enough information. Have they ever stopped to consider that there may not be any information left to elicit? And even if there is, is torture of another human being justified? Is it just me who's left feeling that the war on terror is already lost? If the US believes that it's justified in torturing people what is left to separate them from those they are fighting? Okay, that last sentence may be taking it a bit far, but it reflects how angry that I'm feeling right now. A more detailed report can be found at the Washington Post (registration required, and if you don't want to register, excerpts can be found here).
