Tortured to Death

h/t to rose is a rose for this Raw Story piece:

Unredacted documents reveal
prisoners tortured to death

The American Civil Liberties Union has released previously classified excerpts of a government report on harsh interrogation techniques used in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay. These previously unreported pages detail repeated use of "abusive" behavior, even to the point of prisoner deaths.

Note to Senator Leahy: I am still trying to figure out why anyone would think truth commissions are needed? The truth is out there already, if you were paying attention at all?

In Illinois, a state which the current President has some history, there exists a law titled Compelling confession or information by force or threat, which is a Felony. Here is a link.

BTW, I once lived in New Milford and worked at the Hospital many a year back.

Thanks for the comment and the link. I am not sure if they would be able to enforce Illinois state law in these cases, but there are ample national laws, The Constitution and international treaties that can and should be used as mechanisms for justice.
