The descent into scarequotes

[ #22421 ]
Dear Log,

«In an email dated July 30, one FBI official writes: "I saw a detainee sitting on the floor of the interview room with an Israeli flag draped around him, loud music being played and a strobe light flashing."

The documents, which largely appear to be emails from field agents to their superiors, describe growing FBI discomfort with the interrogation methods in use at Guantánamo and in Iraq.

They provide the most detailed account yet of the methods of interrogation sanctioned by the Bush administration in the "war on terror".»

--" Memos show FBI agents complained about abuses at Guantánamo Bay"

Oboy, scarequotes! Of terror!!

This "'war'" is the male menopause of every dyspeptic Baby Boomer who reads novels he gets at the supermarket, and watches movies with lots of explosions chasing hardscrabble heroes down hallways.
