Suspend your disbelief that torture is official U.S. policy.

Learn what to do with a detainee's corpse.
Watch dedicated Pentagon staffers sort photos by degree of visible damage.
Guess who's telling the truth: the guard or the inmate.
cruel & unusual abides by the Geneva Conventions for the treatment of audiences.

I reserve the right, as Commander-in-Chief and as head of the unitary executive, to do what I need to do to defend America. George W. Bush, signing statement, Detainee Treatment Act 2005

"Following their president's lead, the American people seem to be developing a tolerance, even a taste, for torture." Alfred McCoy, A Question of Torture (2006)
