What does torture look like?

It looks like this:


And this:


Don Surber and Wretchard at The Belmont Club note the silence of the human rights crowd and the MSM in regard to the al Qaeda torture manual published at The Smoking Gun. Writes Wretchard:

The problem with the word “torture” is that it has been so artfully corrupted by some commentators that we now find ourselves at a loss to describe the kinds of activities that the al-Qaeda interrogation manual graphically recommends. Now that the term “torture” has been put in one-to-one correspondence with such admittedly unpleasant activities as punching, sleep deprivation, a handkerchief pulled over one’s face and loaded with water, searches by women upon sensitive Islamic men or the disrespectful handling of Korans — what on earth do we call gouging people’s eyes out?

Answer: we call it nothing. My fearless prediction is that not a single human rights organization will seriously take the matter up. There will be no demonstrations against these barbaric practices, often inflicted upon Muslims by other Muslims, in any of the capitals of the world. Not a single committee in the United Nations will be convened nor will any functionary in the European Union lose so much as a night’s sleep over it. The word for these activities — whatever we choose to call it — will not be spoken.

Indeed, the news that Pfc. Joseph Anzack Jr.’s body showed signs of possible torture has been met by the human rights brigade with…


The continued search for our two other missing soldiers has been met by the human rights brigade with…


This Memorial Day weekend, break the silence and remember our soldiers who suffered and sacrificed. Remember American courage and strength in the face of brutality. Remember the difference between good and evil.
