Question; to laugh, or to cry?

Mohammed was waterboarded – subjected to simulated drowning – while a log of Qahtani’s interrogations was recorded that showed he was subjected to sleep deprivation, loud music, extreme hot and cold, and sexual humiliation. The military commission system does not allow the use of evidence obtained from torture, but the US administration has not accepted that waterboarding amounts to torture.

P O’Neill has this to say;

Of course, this will be described as a “trial” but as George W. Bush likes to remind everyone, he is the Commander-in-Chief of the US Armed Forces, meaning that everyone involved in every aspect of these trials works for George W. Bush. That’s why most countries decided a long time ago that executive branch trials are not a good idea.
