Checks and Balances

SY Hersch argues that torture and sexual humiliation as well as kidnapping were part of the plan. This stuff has occurred in the past, El Salvador, Chile, Vietnam, etc.. but my question is how does this kind of thing happen in a supposed democracy? Agencies like the Pentagon can create budgets that have no oversite kidnap and torture people anywhere in the world? This is something of a rhetorical question.
