31. You're right. I wish I still had the images and articles I found from the Algerian war.
Edited on Mon Apr-20-09 08:18 PM by dustbunnie
But everyone gets on with their life, so I've erased everything from my desktop.

There is one in particular, of the woman raped and completely bound up with rope, that is heartbreaking and will never be erased from my mind. Then there is the opinion of the one-eyed general who understood that waterboarding is the cheapest, most effective form of torture.

Last year I could have googled him easily, just by writing French General + Algeria + torture. This year, there was so much I had to specify One-eyed General. (Could just be my bad googling.) One of the great articles I finally let go was all about how the US taught soldiers, based on the footage retrieved from that war/whatever you want to call it.

Forgot to add the link for the one-eyed general: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/2977681.stm
