Check out an amazing look at Vice President Cheney's efforts to make torture the official policy of the land. This is where torture comes from. Cheney is powerful like no Vice-President before him. He has the ability to set policy, but none of the accountability that goes with that power. People just don't pay that much attention to the office of Vice President. Cheney will never run for office on his own, so he will never be accountable to the voters. Power plus No Accountability equals torture.
