Torture in the news

There have been a number of crucial articles regarding the Guantánamo Bay gulag over the last couple weeks. I've been meaning to say something a bit more substantive, as I've devoted a lot of blog space both here and at my old blog (The Left End of the Dial) to the topic of torture. I'm sure I will again shortly, but for now a quick roundup will have to suffice.
