    From the beginning I always understood that whatever they wuld do to others, they would do to US citizens as well. Matter of fact they are using some of those techniques right now, I've seen them on TV in those 'private prisons, when prisoners don't move fast enough, they get out the 'snarling dogs' to head them out.

    There's no doubt in my mind. After all, these neo cons are derived from the same mentality as those old slavers and segregationists, where do you think 'renditions' come from? Returned, runaway slaves rendered back to where they ran away from, the south, for punishment--severe punishment. Those people back then were brutal, mean, inhumane.

    But then again, during the Reagan years we found out that the CIA ran 'secret torture training cammps' right here in the US--sure did.

    And don't forget, the current Republican Party stemps from the Nixionian Doctirne of the Southern Strategy whereby they wanted to 'appeal' to those disaffected segregationists.
