    Rendition, the fictional account of someone being kidnapped, renditioned and tortured. Emotionally, it strikes home.

    Taxi to the Dark Side, the oscar-winning documentary about some of the US kidnapping, rendition, torture and murder since 9/11. I believe it should be required watching for all Americans, because it was all done in your name. It is also a huge reminder that those at the top who authorized and ordered the kidnapping, rendition and torture, including Bush, Cheney, Rumsfeld, and the rest, still have not been punished, and in fact are still being given time on tv and radio, and space in newspapers, and their opinions are still being sought and being given gravitas, and they are still being made more wealthy than we can imagine.

               Standing for justice and accountability,
                            For Dan,

    Torture is ALWAYS wrong, no matter who is inflicting it on whom.
