On Thursday, April 29, 2010, a “Teach-In on Capitol Hill,” was held in Room 2168 of the Rayburn House Building, in Washington, D.C., dealing with the question of what the U.S. Congress must do to end the U.S. Wars and secure a peaceful Middle East. One of the five panelists at the event was Jeremy Scahill. He is an investigative reporter and the author of the best-selling book, “Blackwater:The Rise of the World’s Most Powerful Mercenary Army.” During the Q&A period, he addressed a query dealing with torture. Mr. Scahill said: “Torture is ongoing under the [President Barack] Obama adminstration...at Guantanamo and... around the world.” He described in detail one of the gruesome torture techniques still currently in use to day. Shades of the Spanish Inquisition! For more details on this event and its sponsors, go to: afterdowningstreet.org/node/51592
