Democrats and Andrew Sullivan seem to say the US is torturing people…. Well turns out Not so much. Now the Us is giving them over to countries who do torture (something we’ve been doing since the 20th century i might add)
But Swiss senator Dick Marty said there was no formal evidence so far of the existence of clandestine detention centers in Romania or Poland as alleged by the New York-based Human Rights Watch.
“There is a great deal of coherent, convergent evidence pointing to the existence of a system of ‘relocation’ or ‘outsourcing’ of torture,” Marty said in a report presented to the Council of Europe, the human rights watchdog investigating the alleged secret prisons.
The report said more than 100 terror suspects may have been transferred to countries where they faced torture or ill treatment in recent years.
So the big “scandal du jour” was a farce
wonder if anyone is going to dial that back?
