Torturing Prisoners to Death

Report probes US custody deaths

Almost 100 prisoners have died in US custody in Iraq and Afghanistan since August 2002, according to US group Human Rights First.
The details were first aired on BBC television's Newsnight programme.
Of the 98 deaths, at least 34 were suspected or confirmed homicides, the programme said.
The Pentagon told Newsnight it had not seen the report but took allegations of maltreatment "very seriously" and would prosecute if necessary.
The report, which is to be published on Wednesday, draws on information from Pentagon and other official US sources.

And if you believe that...I have a bridge to nowhere to sell you.
My plan to stop torture: Start at the top.
If Bush,Cheney and Rumsfeld, torturers-in-chief, gave the Miller/Gitmo torture techniques a dry run first, things would quickly change. That's not going to happen, but I can dream, can't I? It beats the hell out of the nightmare we're perpetrating on people who hate us for our freedoms. If there's a difference between what is being done in our names at Gitmo and Abu Ghraib and what was done at Belsen and Auschwitz I'd like to know. More people were killed by the Nazis? True, but the Nazis didn't have troops with digital cameras and the internet. Nazi officers took pictures for their own personal enjoyment. The Information Age has simply cut down on the number of people who can be killed with impunity. American zombified sheep, incredibly undereducated and stupid, don't believe this killing and torturing is going on because it's not on TV and it's not in WalFart. They're more interested in Britney's implants and the sport of morons, NASCAR. The internet is available for them to learn the truth...but they don't care. Our "leaders" should be in jail for crimes against humanity. Anyone who goes along with them should share adjoining cells. A nation of blind assholes who refuse to see what's going on.
Feel like talking yet,Dick? No? Well, that's because torture doesn't work! Ask McCain. But that didn't stop Rumsfeld from authorizing the torture of children so that their parents would "tell" all they knew to make it stop. Parents will do anything to save their kids, even make shit up.

Yes, they "hate us for our freedoms" - namely, our freedom to torture. State-approved, encouraged, designed and promulgated TORTURE!

Our country is gone; gone with the west Texas wind that blew in a piece of trash named George.

Well said, taosgirl! I like that, "gone with the Texas wind that blew in a piece of trash named George."

He really does make me ashamed to be a citizen of the United States. NOT IN MY NAME!
