A Video Game That Lets You Torture Iraqi Prisoners
Attention grasp. Stress positions. Water dousing. Rectal rehydration. These are some of the government’s sanitized terms for the “enhanced interrogation techniques” that the CIA used on captives held at secret locations overseas during the George W.

That report is dense and riddled with redactions, but its findings have never been more relevant.
