Kafka would be proud

I haven't written much about the use of torture because it is such a huge topic to deal with. But this is too absurd to let pass. Mark Kleiman of the Reality Based Community writes:

Can you imagine a government so absurdly tyrannical, so brutally insane, that it forbids "enemies of the state" to complain about being tortured on the grounds that interrogation techniques are state secrets?

Well, you don't have to imagine it. There is such a government.
