That point is supported by Israeli spokeswoman Tzipora Menache, who was reported in a February 1, 2009 article as saying, “You know very well, and the stupid Americans know equally well, that we [the Israelis] control their government, irrespective of who sits in the White House . . . . We control congress, we control the media, we control show biz, and we control everything in America. IN AMERICA YOU CAN CRITICIZE GOD, BUT YOU CAN’T CRITICIZE ISRAEL.” But I do.

Having always considered myself a fervently patriotic citizen, I smolder at being made a surveillance target and now a target of electronic torture and mind control because of my personal and political views, especially my foreign personal and political views. If communication with radical and terrorist groups is the only object of my surveillance, that surveillance would have concluded years ago that I am not a domestic terrorist or a threat to the United States of America. That suggests that I am perceived by either pro-Israel U. S. intelligence or Israeli intelligence as a threat to Israel and thus the reason for my surveillance. The aim of Israel and its pro-Israel American accomplices is to stifle any opposition at all in the United States – and worldwide -- to Israel, and American intelligence appears only too ready to lend assistance toward that objective.

No. For one thing, it's being painted as partisan, which is kind of laughable, since plenty of Democrats join most Republicans in defending the infliction of pain on captives. (A few Republicans and most independents have also come out against torture—"This is not America," Sen. Angus King (I-Maine), a member of the Senate intelligence committee, told CNN today.)

Of course, many torture defenders argue that these techniques were in fact adapted from practices U.S. service members voluntarily endure when they opt to take SERE training: "survival, evasion, resistance, and escape" schooling. But those schools are meant to instruct pupils on how to endure torture by American enemies, who presumably would stoop to such brutal means. And the researcher who adapted those techniques for interrogation told the New Yorker back in 2005 how much he regretted doing so.

It was predictable that this abuse would ensue as more and more police departments in Britain and America started distributing this high tech torture device to the rank and file last year.

Ostensibly, it was to extract intelligence out of terrorists to prevent future attacks against Americans. In the face of years of evidence disputing this thesis, much of the op-ed and TV pushback from Bush-era architects of the torture policy amounts to: "Nuh-uh." The amount of ink spilled over whether torture is "effective" in the past decade and a half has been breathtaking. (Not as breathtaking as waterboarding, of course.)
