A torture timeline

Someone has taken the time to construct a timeline from 2001-2009 documenting what we know about our government's involvement in torturing people.

I have to admit to being a bit overwhelmed by all of the stories swirling about on the topic. It was one thing to be one of those people on the sidelines saying, "Hey, this is something important that's being ignored." Now that it's seeing the light of the day, it's so horrifying that you just want to look the other way. But Bush, Cheney, & Co. did this in our names. It's our responsibility to pay attention.

I'm reading an article about the torture and murder perpetrated as part of the Mexican drug wars, and I'll be writing something more about that--and our own actions--soon.
