American Torture On Tour


If you’re in the Southwest United States in the next few days and have some spare time, you’re in for a treat. My colleagues Raj Purohit and Tom Moran are on tour with Michael Otterman. The three are discussing Otterman’s important book, American Torture. Their conversation is sure to branch off into a number of interesting topics. I wish I could be there myself.

    Sorry, Scott Paul, but your idea of “a treat” and mine are pretty far removed. Talking about TORTURE? “A treat”? I don’t THINK SO!

    Steve? That’s contemporaries! As in c-o-n-t-e-m-p-o-r-a-r-i-e-s. There see? I can spell. Sorry about that!

    Steve? Do you ever wander behind the “Zion Curtain?” Ever? I’m fairly certain that they’d let you in. No, really they might. If you timed your adventure just right, you wouldn’t have to encounter the “elders” or the missionaries as we know and love them here in the Land O’ Zion. Hell, they might just leave you entirely alone and untroubled. Now if Sen. Orrin ‘bone-gangsta’ Hatch were to learn of any pending visit by you or your contempories, there would be hell to pay. Of that, I’m absolutely certain. So with a modicum of clandestine planning, you could slip in and then out and only those “in the know” would have to know. We’d appreciate a visit and that is a certainty too. The Orrin Hatch Militia wouldn’t appreciate it but, they suck on general principles anyway. Wouldn’t you please consider the idea for the sake of those of us here that relish moderate thought?

    “Alan Greenspan claims Iraq war was really for oil”
    Part of the PNAC agenda?
    Sounds like the mainstream “think tanks” have been part of the enablers. Hmmmmmm…………
