It is inserted down into the stomach slowly and directly, and it would be impossible to insert the wrong end of the tube.” But, Edmondson admits it’s “painful.”

In 1989, Republican George H. W. Bush was President. That year, Sr. Ortiz, an Ursuline nun from New Mexico, was working in Guatemala. She was
kidnapped,” shuttled-off to a “secret prison” and “repeatedly raped and tortured by troops commanded by General Hector Gramajo (a CIA asset and graduate of the U.S. Army School of the Americas)” According to Sr. Ortiz, "U.S. personnel were present in interrogation and torture rooms.

Torture? You decide.
