"There can be little doubt now that the government has used drugs on terrorist suspects that are designed to weaken their resistance to
interrogation. All that’s missing is the syringes and videotapes.

"Thirty pages into a memorandum discussing the legal boundaries of military interrogations in 2003, senior Justice Department lawyer John C. Yoo
tackled a question not often asked by American policymakers: Could the president, if he desired, have a prisoner's eyes poked out?
Or, for that matter, could he have "scalding water, corrosive acid or caustic substance" thrown on a prisoner? How about slitting an ear, nose or
lip, or disabling a tongue or limb? What about biting?"
Aren't lawyers wonderful?
