As President Obama grapples with accusations of torture by U.S. agents, I suggest he consult the former Senate majority leader, Tom Daschle.
I first contacted Daschle in 1975, when he was an aide to Sen. James Abourezk of South Dakota, who was leading a somewhat lonely campaign against CIA abuses.
this is a great article from the LA TIMES, but truthfully, it is only the tip of the iceberg when it comes to United States torture campaigns...DON'T IT JUST MAKE YA PROUD?
For a little HISTORY, there is this:
"Many Americans were puzzled by the news, in 1902, that United States soldiers were torturing Filipinos with water."
