The Americans continue to beat themselves silly over that torture business. Quite frankly, I think the whole business is just plain stupid. First of all, their methods really weren't all that great. In fact, it was more like something from some grade B homosexual porn film than actual torture.

Anyway, the American Attorney General John Ashcroft was testifying before congress about it. Apparently there was some sort of memo which told the White House it was okay under international law to torture Al Qaeda suspects. And even though parts of this memo have leaked to the media, Ashcroft is still refusing to share the documents with congress.

You know, that John Ashcroft is an interesting guy. Did you know he used to be a Senator, and when he ran for reelection in 2000 he lost to a dead guy!!!!

No wonder we Iraqis are scared to death of democracy!
