Why is this something that is never talked about? Basically, the US doesn't torture people, it sends them to other countries to do it for them.

Here's a great article:

Basically, a Canadian engineer had worked with a terrorist suspect's brother. He was arrested in the US, put on a plane to Syria, and tortured and held for a year. He was only released when the Canadian Government got involved, and was charged with no crime.

So why hadn't I, and everybody else that I've spoken with, ever heard of this?

It's those loopholes they look for. Like who is going to go to Syria and investigate outsourcing torture.

Project Echelon is an interesting one. Came across it in 1996. Since it's illegal for the US to spy on it's own citizens, let some other country do it for you while you spy on their country then exchange the info. You can tell the authorities, but what are they going to do since they are in on the deal.
The NSA run a large part of Echelon. The NSA (you know, the ones that actually have National Security in their title) has a budget larger than the FBI and CIA combined.

The NSA employs some scary individuals. I knew a guy who used to work for the NSA. They are some of the most a-moral, do it at any cost individuals in the world.

I hope we ship all al-queda to Pakistan to let them interrogate them.

The Democrats. They hate all outsourcing and want the US government to have the monopoly on torture. They were just pissed that they didn't call the shots at Abu Ghraib.
