Our country operates secret prisons in various corners of the globe, facilities where international laws are ignored and suspected terrorists are subjected to solitary confinement,sensory deprivation, waterboarding and forced liquid diets, amongst other methods devised to extract “intelligence”.

Human rights advocates and members of our armed forces alike will continue to debate and criticize these interrogation techniques, but pretty much everyone — including those subjected to torture — will concur ; at least we’ve never locked someone in a box and made him or her listen to Stephen A. Smith’s Sirius/XM radio program.
