Most years at Christmas I get a chance to read books that I normally wouldn't get round to reading.
This year is no different, though my choice of reading has proved to be rather disturbing.
Over the last few days I've been working my way through "Bad Men", which tells the story of some of the Bush administration's victims of torture being held in Cuba.
Some of the stories are truly horrendous and if you made a film of them we probably wouldn't think the plot was plausible. Unfortunately it's all based on fact!
