Please hold. Your torture is important to us...

I think it's a sad sign of the state of "customer service" call centers in the US, that when I saw the following story on the outsourcing of torture, all I could think was "as long as we don't send them to New Delhi."

STRASBOURG, France (AP) -- The head of a European investigation into allegedCIA secret prisons in Europe said Tuesday that evidence pointed to the existence of a system of ''outsourcing'' of torture by the United States, and that it was highly likely European governments were aware of it.

But Swiss Sen. Dick Marty said there was no tangible proof so far of the existence of clandestine centers in Romania or Poland as alleged by the New York-based Human Rights Watch, and complained of a lack of cooperation by EU governments.
