Mathgeekjoe: the CIA supported and assisted many violent regimes which committed far worse acts of torture. South Vietnam was known for using rape as a form of torture along with electrcuting people, often their genitals.
Mathgeekjoe: true but just because other groups committed worse crimes doesnt mean the CIA gets off the hook. They still have a lot to answer to. We have to set an example of being as humane as possible and not just being slightly less cruel then the other group.
