The Pentagon dismissed a United Nations report on Monday that criticized the United States for the conditions and treatment of detainees at Guantanamo Bay.
The U.N. draft report, which has not yet been officially released, called for the prison to be closed, citing torture acts and prolonged solitary confinement.
It was precisely this kind of maltreatment that was one of the pretend reasons the neocons used to justify invading Iraq. Y’know, the US was there to stop the evildoers, prevent torture, etc. Now the US openly admits to torture and cares not if anyone complains. Just a pack of amoral thugs, aren’t they? When they aren’t invading countries based on lies and torturing noncombatants, they shoot friends in the face, lie about it, then blame the friend. Makes me proud to be an American.
