We don’t use “enhanced interrogation techniques”; we torture.

I am tired of hearing the phrase “Enhanced Interrogation Techniques”. After reading the Torture Report, no reputable media outlet should ever use that expression again. No longer should media cover for government “torture” and “torturers”. 

No matter what leaders call it, if you paint a pig, it is still a pig, and torture is still torture despite the rhetoric. Anyone who denies its torture should have a large plastic tube inserted into their rectum, have pureed hummus, pasta with sauce, nuts and raisins pumped into their rectum through the tube, then tell us if they think they were tortured or a victim of “enhanced Interrogation techniques”. One torturer said: “you get a tube up as far as you can, then open the IV wide. No need to squeeze the bag - let gravity do the work.”

It is also quite apparent the CIA director Brennan believes he nor his agency really did wrong, as the day after the release he was on the offensive defending his and the CIA actions. It is equally apparent after listening to Brennan that left alone, both he, the CIA, and other agencies, will revert to torture. Unless those who gave the orders and carried out the torture are prosecuted under the law, there will be no end to torture.

The precedent must be set. Obama’s lame excuse that we must look forward and not backward, is a hoax. He is simply trying to insure his own immunity from future prosecution. The rest of the world is in an uproar demanding prosecution while our government leaders continue to excuse and cover for the tortures.

They must be held accountable in a court of law or in the International Criminal Court at The Hague. Oh wait, the US refused to participate in the International Criminal Court and has tried its best to sabotage it and minimize its power. It should be apparent why we don’t like ICC. They want us!!
