Americans totured by americans, newsworhty or commonplace?
Donald Vance, a 29-year-old Navy veteran from Chicago, was a whistle-blower
who prompted the raid by tipping off the F.B.I. to suspicious activity at
the company where he worked, including possible weapons trafficking. He was
arrested and held for 97 days — shackled and blindfolded, prevented from
sleeping by blaring music and round-the-clock lights. In other words, he
was subjected to the same mistreatment that thousands of non-Americans have
been subjected to since the 2003 invasion.
