Abu Ghraib: One Year Later
Human Rights First has issued a report on the aftermath of Abu Ghraib. As we noted here, it is the one year anniversary of the disclosure of the prisoner abuse photos that shocked the world. The report concludes:
- Torture and abuse of prisoners in U.S. custody extend far beyond the walls of Abu Ghraib;
- The civilian and military leaders in charge of detention and interrogation operations a year ago have been promoted rather than punished;
- The key policies that led to such widespread illegality are still in place.
