Medical examinations of former terror suspects held by US troops showed proof of physical and psychological torture, a US-based human rights group said.
The Physicians for Human Rights group cited beatings, sexual abuse, electric shock, isolation and forced nakedness.

And from Boing Boing:
Physicians for Human Rights who examined 11 former detainees from Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and at Guantanamo Bay say they “uncovered medical evidence of torture, including beatings, electric shock, sleep deprivation, sexual humiliation, sodomy and scores of other abuses.”
The detainees were never charged with crimes.

This week, the man ultimately responsible for the USA’s torture and murder of innocents was wined and dined in Britain. He met the Queen and had a presumably very expensive dinner with Gordon Brown. All while the Metropolitan Police beat the shit out of peaceful protestors trying to get within shouting distance.
The UK loves George W. Bush. He’s a lovely feller, what’s not to like? Under his regime, American citizens have had their liberties and freedoms pregressively eroded while, abroad, his forces have illegally invaded sovereign nations, kidnapping innocent people (some of them children) and then tortured them, often to death, in hellholes like Guantanamo.
Day by day, week by week there are new reports like the one above, displaying the true horror behind Bush’s sanguine grin and homespun charms. The evidence is massive and undeniable to all but the most Nazi of Republicans.
Yet, he remains in office and the UK remains best friends with him.
