That's what this starting to feel like. But there's an awful lot of news about it.
Secretary of State Condoleeza Rice reiterated America's position that we do not engage in torture of terror war detainees (and from what I've seen, we don't), although her remarks failed to quiet global critics.
In the meantime, most people in the U.S. Britain, France and South Korea think torture is okay if warranted by the circumstances, an AP-Ipsos poll shows.
A German citizen held as a terror suspect by the U.S. claims he was tortured and files suit.
And testimony continued in Saddam's trial, with additional witnesses detailing tortune and abuse.
Saddam refused to attend the hearing today, complaining that among other things he hadn't been allowed a change of clothes in three days. Meanwhile, one of the men testifying in the trial said he'd be forced to wear the same pajamas he was arrested in for nine months while in jail.
Finally, if anyone needs a reminder about how brutal Saddam's regime was, take a read through this British government report on torture and abuse in Iraq under Saddam, if you can stomach it.
One thing is clear -- when it comes to this torture stuff, we Americans a real amateurs compared to Saddam.
