Remember: sell the sizzle, not the electrodes

Fallenmonk examines the rebranding of US-approved torture as enhanced interrogation techniques.

Reminds me of a Chomsky anecdote describing a tombstone he spotted in a national park:
Here lies an Indian woman, a Wampanoag, whose family and tribe gave of themselves and their land that this great nation might be born and grow.
America should be grateful to those recipients of our enhanced interrogation techniques who gave of themselves (if not their land) so that our great nation might continue to grow.
