|Donald Henry Rumsfeld|

As Orwell pointed out most effectively, governments control language as well as people. Since the Abu Ghraib prison scandal broke, our government, from the highest officials in Washington to Army prison guards in Baghdad, have used every euphemism they can think of to avoid the word that clearly characterizes what some of our soldiers and civilian contractors have been doing: torture. 
Donald Henry "Rummy" Rumsfeld is a disgraced former Secretary of Defense under George W. Bush. He faced severe criticism after the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse. Rumsfeld tried to deny torture happened in Abu Ghraib saying "What has been charged so far is abuse, which I believe technically is different from torture. I'm not going to address the 'torture' word."
