How did we sink so low in just 6 years?

By Mike Whitney

In a 253 to 168 “party-line” vote, the congress repealed
habeas corpus and approved the torturing of prisoners

Although breezily minimized by some media apologists as a
mild form of "coercive interrogation," the practice of
"waterboarding" was among the most feared torture
