Cartoon Strip: Nota Bene by Leonardo No. 72 - Call It TortureGlen Bledsoe Salem-News.com
This is the seventy-second installment of the Salem-News.com original series "Nota Bene by Leonardo" by Salem cartoonist Glen Bledsoe.
(Earth-Rodeo 21) - Like several parallel Earths in the multiverse, Earth-Rodeo 21 has a hard time getting its priorities straight. For one thing it believes that America has the freedom to destroy the rest of the planet through a variety ways centering around turning their world into Venus II.
Their North America crawls with an armada of carbon spewing, hummer-like vehicles as Americans shake their collective fists in road rage and engage in high speed chases with the police.
Its version of the United States of America can't even decide whether torture is a method approved by their laws which clearly forbid it. Government officials get around the problem by referring to their interrogation methods in other terms. Anyone witnessing the events or watching the videos would call it torture.
But CIA officials now have said that the video records of their procedures have been destroyed. Have they? Or have they merely moved into the hands of a private collector? As you will soon see some people have tastes which run in that direction.
