t r u t h o u t - Rice Engulfed in Criticism for Torture

Well, well, has Europe had enough of Bush's war on civilised values.

Just maybe. Ms Rice seems to be puring oil on troubled waters. But is this another hurricane brewing?

t r u t h o u t - Rice Engulfed in Criticism for Torture: "UN human rights chief Louise Arbour warned Wednesday that the US-declared war on terrorism was eroding a global ban on torture. In remarks at the United Nations in the run-up to Human Rights Day on Saturday, Arbour urged Rice to further clarify the US policy on torture and rendition.

'Pursuing security objectives at all costs may create a world in which we are neither safe nor free,' Arbour said. 'This will certainly be the case if the only choice is between the terrorists and the torturers.'

US Ambassador John R. Bolton immediately responded, saying Arbour should be concentrating on 'real' human rights abusers such as Zimbabwe and Myanmar - not the United States."
