More Torture Memos Revealed

In case you had any lingering belief in the judicial process or constitutional safeguards, some of the most disturbing torture memos yet have just been released.

The memos discuss some pretty graphic things, all in that dry legalistic tone that lets us not recognize the horrible things happening. Approved torture methods range from the infamous waterboarding to how exactly to slap someone in the stomach to shoving people into insect-filled boxes after telling them there are poisonous insects in there.

Of course, Obama has already said he's not going to prosecute any of these people, but I wouldn't recommend trying out any of these yourself, as you undoubtedly would be prosecuted...
