The normalisation of torture

When we heard that the Bush Administration was torturing suspects in the "war on terror", the right-wing spin machine was quick to dismiss it as frat-boy hazing. Now, they're seeing workers waterboarded in "team-building" exercises.

What's disturbing is that this is only a civil case. Why isn't the unterboss being prosecuted?
