    The Pentagon sent a U.S. veteran of the “dirty wars” in Central America to oversee sectarian police commando units in Iraq, that set up secret detention and torture centres to get information. Question: Why didn’t the terrorists strike Switzerland instead of England? After all, the two countries share the same “freedom and values,” don’t they? Answer: The Swiss government didn’t attack Iraq. It doesn’t meddle in the Middle East. It didn’t participate in the brutal sanctions against the Iraqi people. It doesn’t maintain an empire of overseas bases.

    Abu Ghraib unveiled a lengthy list of disastrous actions and cover-ups by the Bush administration and the American military. Abu Ghraib examines the problem from many different perspectives, gathering together timely essays on the prison scandal from prominent progressive writers. Barbara Ehrenreich looks at the story through the lens of feminism, noting that the most infamous photos involve.   When the public revelations of abuse and torture at Abu Ghraib prison created a brief furor in the world, the ICRC, Human Rights First, AI, HRW and other Human Rights groups documented far more widespread and systematic crimes committed by US forces against people they extra-judicially detained in Iraq.

      Ready said he saw suicides in the combat zone, and these shook his people as much as the Tillman incident or the prisoner abuse scandal at Abu Ghraib prison. “I .   As the prisoner-abuse scandal in Iraq spirals out of control, it's all too easy to forget that just last month, the Supreme Court heard three cases concerning the rights of “enemy combatants” being held at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, and in US Naval brigs off the American coast. One issue at stake in these cases is whether the government – specifically President Bush – should be trusted to.

As a result of the work assembling the documents, memoranda, and reports that constitute the material in The Torture Papers the question of the rationale behind the Bush administration's decision to condone the use of coercive interrogation techniques in the interrogation of detainees suspected of terrorist connections was raised.

The Iraqi government has forged ahead in reopening the prison despite the stigma from years of torture and abuse there, both under American control and during Saddam Hussein's rule. A CBS News 60 Minutes II report releases images and testimony pertaining to the abuse of prisoners by U.S.

military personnel at Abu Ghraib Detention Facility in Baghdad, Iraq. The scandal, documented by graphic photographs, calls attention to the widespread problem of post-9/11 torture. It's a cliche that a picture is worth a thousand words. But the case of the Iraqi prisoner-abuse scandal proves the power of that truism.

Pardoning or commuting sentences is a power granted by the U.S. Constitution to sitting U.S. Presidents. While most presidents grant pardons throughout their terms, Clinton chose to make nearly a third of them on Januhis last day in office.Michael Byers, a widely known world expert on international law, weighs these issues in War examines the history of armed conflict and international law through a series of case studies of past conflicts, ranging from the Caroline Incident to the abuse of detainees by U.S.

forces at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. Byers explores the 3/5(2).Instead, as details emerge of the physical abuse and deaths of scores of Iraqi and Afghan detainees in US military custody, other documents and reports suggest a contributing factor was the top- down weakening of military standards of humane prisoner treatment as part of the Bush administration's drive for intelligence in the war on terrorism.
