Canada “Unofficial” Declares the United States Is A Country Which Utilizes Torture

The BBC has reported today that Canada has “unofficial” declared the United States as being a country where prisoners are at risk of being tortured.

The Canadian training manual lists U.S. interrogation techniques such as forced nudity, isolation, sleep deprivation and the blindfolding of prisoners under "definition of torture".

This is just another example of how far we have fallen in regard to policy under the Bush administration.

A quote from Bob MacKenzie in "Strange Brew" that really sums up how Canadians feel about torture: "My brother and I used to say that drownin' in beer was like heaven, eh? Now he's not here, and I've got two soakers... this isn't heaven, this sucks!"
