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.
