More Sickness, This Time As "Controlled Acute Episode"

More Sickness, This Time As "Controlled Acute Episode"

by

From a memo on waterboarding:

"The waterboard, which inflicts no pain or actual harm whatsoever, does
not, in our view, inflict "severe pain and suffering"...The waterboard is simply a controlled acute episode, lacking
the connotation of a protracted period of time generally given to
suffering."

Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing.
