The CIA Torture Report Is a Carnival of Horrors

It indeed makes complete sense to aim for false information to fit an incorrect narrative, if the restriction of fundamental human rights is one of the actual goals of the program. Mitchell & Jessen’s interpretation of Learned Helplessness obviously was a perfect fit. Shockingly none of the high ranking officials involved in the torture program (its conception, preparation, execution or perpetuation) have been held accountable for this involvement. We need to raise awareness of the dangers of allowing such deceitful narratives to take grip and of the consequences of impunity in the case of the US torture program.
