Alfred McCoy, professor of history at UW-Madison and author of A Question of Torture, discusses in this audio interview the history of the CIA's torture programs and their manifestations in the so-called war on terror. For more information, you can read an article by McCoy where he discusses what he calls the CIA's "Manhattan Project of the Mind".
It is plain to see that the US government is actively involved in torture. Everyone in the world but Americans knows it. It's time we stopped accepting the implausible "plausible deniability" arguments that the government-media complex keep suckering us with. This is not medieval Europe, this is the home of the free and the land of the brave. Wake up, people!
