Speaking of Torture: Buckley skinned alive

” . . .  Mugniyah was indeed one of terrorism’s modern-day pioneers. U.S. intelligence and counterterrorism officials contacted by NEWSWEEK generally declined even to speculate about who might be responsible for his killing; to do so would almost certainly invite reprisals from Hizbullah. Yet they seemed almost giddy as they discussed the militant’s death. Mugniyah, after all, is suspected of helping to orchestrate some of the deadliest attacks on Americans on record, including the 1983 bombing of a U.S. Marine barracks in Beirut, which killed 241 servicemen, and the 1984 kidnapping of the   CIA’s   Beirut   station   chief,   William  Buckley.”

Has anyone at MSNBC bothered to investigate instances of real torture of Americans at the hands of radicals and others like Mugniyah?

Didn’t think so.
