From The Times, today: "In a partial concession to Congressional pressure, the Bush administration agreed on Wednesday to show the Senate and House Intelligence Committees secret Justice Department legal opinions justifying harsh interrogation techniques that critics call torture."

These people, if anyone does, deserve to be put in the electrically-charged, death-dealing thing that some call a chair. "...techniques that critics call torture"? What is The Times saying here? Maybe waterboarding et al isn't really torture, that it's all in what you call it? How about what civilization calls torture, something like that. Oh George Orwell where are you when we need you--it's 1984 and way way beyond.
