  •  NPR has been saying that for months. (6+ / 0-)

    Until they flip that phrase (i.e. "torture, which supporters describe 'enhanced interrogation techniques'"), NPR will be continuing to do their small part to enable war crimes.

      How is water boarding an "enhanced interrogation technique"? The Spanish Inquisition used it!

      As if things could get worse without getting better.

      Sorry if my perception was wrong.  I listen to NPR most days and had rarely caught that phrase until the last week or so.  Then I noticed that they were saying it every time they made reference to the issue.

      I agree that it's still a long way from describing reality, but I did feel a llittle bit mroe hopeful that the public discourse was at least moving a bit in the right direction.
