t r u t h o u t - Torture in Iraq

Everything seems to be catching up with Bush at once.
Human Rights Watch is slowly demonstrating that torture and abuse are part and parcel of US military behaviour generally in many parts of the world. At home Congress wants it stopped. Bush squirms and tries to oppose their objection to torture and brutality.

This regime is utterly depraved corrupt and disgusting.

t r u t h o u t - Torture in Iraq: " The torture of detainees reportedly was so widespread and accepted that it became a means of stress relief for soldiers. Soldiers said they felt welcome to come to the PUC tent on their off-hours to 'fuck a PUC' or 'smoke a PUC.' 'Fucking a PUC' referred to beating a detainee, while 'smoking a PUC' referred to forced physical exertion sometimes to the point of unconsciousness. The soldiers said that when a detainee had a visible injury such as a broken limb due to 'fucking' or 'smoking,' an Army physician's assistant would be called to administer an analgesic and fill out the proper paperwork. They said those responsible would state that the detainee was injured during the process of capture and the physician's assistant would sign off on this. Broken bones occurred 'every other week' at FOB Mercury."
