Rumsfeld's Unkown Known, or Iraq's Initiation into Democratic Practice by Slavoj Zizek

Slavoj Zizek discusses American torture and how there is a "total lack of guilt by way of remaining ignorant of what is known." Zizek compares American torture to Iraqi torture, pointing out that the Iraqi approach is "anonymous brutalism" and and America creates a spectacle. He concludes by stating that America is the most dangerous kind of power because it takes the position of "merely defending itself."
