Accountability for American Torture?

This week Human Right Watch (link) published a study severely criticizing torture and enhanced interrogation methods (being now?) used by agents and officials of the United States of America.

Despite substantial pressure, American public outcry, and worldwide condemnation, U.S. Government torture and the perpetrators have largely evaded the criminal justice system. Lack of accountability may be the biggest crime.

Each branch of the U.S. Government, in both former & present administrations, thus share guilt for repeated and severe human rights violations extending to murder. The Bush gang, and the Obama crowd, each pose before a US flag smeared with blood; each tramples on his or her solemn oath to uphold the law.

Government torture is Wrong! Speak out against torturers!
