Sam Smith: READER ROY ROCKWELL points out something stunningly absent from all the verbiage about torture spewing out of Washington: neither George Bush nor Donald Rumsfeld has issued a direct order not to do it again: no more beatings, excessive restraints, torture of children, attacks on eyes, sexual threats and abuse, naked punishment, women's underwear worn on the head, hoods, sleep deprivation, pouring ice cold water or using dogs to bite prisoners...The order should be issued by Bush and should apply to federal prisons in this country as well as those in Iraq and Gitmo. Anything less is an implicit approval of torture at home and abroad. Amen.
