Special Outsourcing

It's one thing to outsource American jobs but now they are trying to outsource torture.
The Republican leadership of Congress is attempting to legalize extraordinary rendition. "Extraordinary rendition" is the euphemism we use for sending terrorism suspects to countries that practice torture for interrogation. As one intelligence official described it in the Washington Post, "We don't kick the sh*t out of them. We send them to other countries so they can kick the sh*t out of them.”
Note that only suspected terrorists can get treated this way. God help you if they suspect wrong. But don't worry. We know that every single person we have arrested on suspicion of terrorism is guilty. That's why we have successfully tried and incarcerated so many of them so far.

Thats a tough one, torture has its uses but I had hoped that we as a people had been civilized enough to not require such blatent acts of brute force. But then again look at all the wars still going on, it doesn't take a majority to get chaos, but it does take a majority to get order.
