British Court Compels Disclosure of Secret Document on Torture of British Terrorist, and... Yeah. It's Not Torture.

Panties bunching over at La Sullivan's I'm sure, though.

Mohamed's lawyers claimed the seven paragraphs prove that the U.S. and British governments were complicit in extracting evidence against him through torture. They have been fighting for access to the documents along with The Associated Press and other news organizations.

The paragraphs posted on the Web site of the British Foreign Office after the court decision say Mohamed was subjected to "cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment by the United States authorities," including sleep deprivation, shackling and threats resulting in mental stress and suffering, during interviews by U.S. authorities.

They conclude that the paragraphs given to MI5, "made clear to anyone reading them that BM (Mohamed) was being subjected to the treatment that we have described and the effect upon him of that intentional treatment."

The charges against Mohamed were later dropped.

That's it, huh? Sleep deprivation, shackling, and threats?

They keep pushing this crap, these lawsuits, this henny-penny chicken-squawking, thinking at some point we're going to give a rat's ass.

We're not. I am not just saying this for effect, and I think this summarizes most people's feelings: I am annoyed that we didn't do more.
