44. Can you read?

This article states that ONE man, his former jailer, says that they didn't torture prisoners there. And as I've noted and has been noted by others, there is a very good chance that man is delusional or lying through his teeth. There is no corroborative reporting by either the BBC or anyone else that supports his claims that no prisoners were tortured, because it is common knowledge the prisoners there were tortured.

The BBC is merely reporting this man's claims. Would have been good of them to have a side article where they note that the likelihood of this being true is slim to nil, but they don't.

So, show me in this thread where I say or agree that McCain wasn't ever tortured. You've got your righteous indignation undies all tangled up at the wrong person.
