U.S. Tells U.N. Panel of Steps to Revise Interrogation Policy

In its presentation Wednesday, the Obama administration stopped short of saying that the treaty also barred cruelty in overseas prisons where the United States had a detainee in its effective control but was not a governing authority. Such places appeared to include former secret prisons where the Central Intelligence Agency tortured suspects during the Bush administration and detention centers in Iraq and Afghanistan during wars there.

Still, the American officials stressed that domestic statutes and an executive order issued by Mr. Obama filled any gaps. Ms. McLeod and Mr. Malinowski said that there was no place the United States considered itself free to use torture or cruelty.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

So, force feeding hunger strikers, many of whom either have not been charged with a crime, or have been cleared to go, but have not yet been released...is somehow NOT torture?!?!?

To anyone who has had this done, even by the most sympathetic and skilled medical practitioner, you know it is uncomfortable at best; but to have it done as punishment for a hunger strike?!?

Immoral in the extreme.

And I will tell you why these people will never be released, which is the source of their overwhelming frustration to begin with; and that is because waterboarding was not the worst atrocity which was done to them.
