Nice People...

This week's New Scientist (Nov 20, 2004) calls for a rather strong stomach; it had a special report on interrogation techniques and the effect it can have on the 'interviewee'.
If you've seen any of the Abu Nidal candid cam shots, you'll know what to expect.

As with all things, the definition of 'torture' appears rather malleable: no laying on of hands, or boots, apart from a few bracing slaps (indeed, we don't much like to use the 'T' word these days). Still, I can assure you that it would NOT be a pleasant experience.
Seems like there are paying jobs for clinical psychopaths after all... (a tough job, but someone's gotta do it!)
Once you've read that, you can find Amnesty International's website here.
