The last of it.
Slate today has an interactive primer on American interrogation by Emily Bazelon, Phillip Carter, and Dahlia Lithwick. I agree with their conclusion, Jody won't; boring. It's a useful resource, though; all of the legal memos that created the conditions for abuse are there, there's a summary of the chain-of-command from Lydie England up to President Bush, and most interestingly, summaries of all the Army and Pentagon investigations into interrogation techniques. I'm not going to write about torture anymore.
