the Bear and the Rabbit were sharing a cell at Gitmo.
– i can’t stand it, Bear! they’re beating me every day and keep asking me to ‘confess’, and i don’t even know WHAT to confess!
– i know, Rabbit, they’re doing the same to me…
the cell door opens and the throw in a Giraffe. the Rabbit is dismayed:
– oh, Bear, i’ll admit anything! look what they did to the poor Horse!!!
this is my contribution to the debate on the merits of torture, a debate relaunched after the alleged killing of the alleged terrorist osama binladen, resulting from alleged information on his hiding place obtained from allegedly torturing alleged terrorists already in custody, allegedly in cia prisons allegedly located in other countries.
