Talkleft, which just has tons of good stuff every week, has two links of particular interest.
First, Iraqi Top General Complains About Confinement Conditions, a link to a Washington Post story which lays out facts tending to prove that the US is holding a top Iraqi general, and admitted POW, in conditions that violate the Geneva Conventions. The speculation is that the General wouldn't give the answers sought about Iraqi WMD's which, after all, we know are out there somewhere.
The second link is to a nice piece of of torture-related surrealism by ex-Phythonian Terry Jones, writing in the Guardian about how This won't hurt much.
Turns out it hurts even when I don't laugh.
