UN and human rights groups seek prosecutions following CIA torture report

Oh wait you mean a government can't just do whatever it wants and say it's OK?

Waterboarding, sexual threats and sleep deprivation were among the torture tactics CIA agents used after 9/11, according to a much-anticipated Senate report, a summary of which was released on Tuesday.

The Senate Intelligence Committee compiled a 6,000-page "torture report," detailing how the CIA handled its prisoners during the so-called 'war on terror.' The report also said the tactics did not aid in locating and killing Osama bin Laden. The torture practices began during the presidency of George W. Bush, though the CIA hid its methods, the breadth of the torture programs and the effectiveness of torture from the Bush White House, according to the report.

Human Rights Watch and Amnesty International are among those calling for prosecution.

Facebook Developing ‘Facebook at Work’ Service



Facebook Developing ‘Facebook at Work’ Service, Says Report | WIRED
Facebook is reportedly testing a product called Facebook at Work, designed to let people, well, use Facebook at Work.

I think everybody already has this… it's called: Facebook.

The Financial Times says, "…the service would allow users to message their colleagues, connect with other people in their professional network, and collaborate on work." I have a hard time believing any corporate IT people are going to trust Facebook given their ever changing privacy policy, opt-in default strategy, etc.
