Torture Awareness Month

For what is evil but good tortured by its own hunger and thirst?
Verily when good is hungry it seeks food even in dark caves, and when it thirsts it drinks even of dead waters.

-Kahlil Gibran, "The Prophet"

"Extraordinary rendition means the forcible transfer of a person from one country to another without any judicial or administrative oversight. Since September 11th, 2001, extraordinary rendition has been used for covertly transporting persons to countries for detention and interrogation where there is a danger of facing torture or cruel, inhuman, or degrading treatment. "

Could you do us a favor and make your hyperlinks stand out more? They are hard to find within the story.
