Thiessen and Orwell

A reader writes:

Can we get more disgustingly Orwellian than this:

The job of the interrogator is to safely help the terrorist do his duty to Allah, so he then feels liberated to speak freely.

So, the interrogator isn't "torturing" the subject, he's "liberating" him.

Yes: and the WaPo published it! In the now immortal words of Peggy Noonan: "Sometimes you need to just keep walking."

Faster, Peggy, faster!
