Default Re: The Epic Crime That Dares Not Speak Its Name

In September, Human Rights Watch released an epic study that documents the systematic nature of torture by the Americans, and how casual it is, even enjoyable. This is a sergeant from the US Army's 82nd Airborne Division: "On their day off people would show up all the time. Everyone in camp knew if you wanted to work out your frustration you show up at the PUC [prisoners'] tent. In a way it was sport... One day a sergeant shows up and tells a PUC to grab a pole. He told him to bend over and broke the guy's leg with a mini Louisville Slugger that was a metal [baseball] bat. He was the fucking cook!"

I was so incensed by the above paragraph that it was worth a trip back to make sure that it was read as widely as possible.

It is morally indefensible. Man's inhumanity to man knows no bounds. Shame on them all.
