Traditional show trials, just like the ones that Joseph Vissarionovich Djugashvili used to order!

"What you and I mean by torture could be different," Brownback told defense lawyer Major Tom Fleener.

He said "a red-hot needle in the eye" constitutes torture but was not ready to commit to a prohibition in advance of the trial.
