'the hook': setting the stage for war on Syria

| | TrackBacks (0)

Will the U.S. find torture allegations a pretext for military action? 

Friday, a United Nations human rights panel expressed alarm at reports of executions and torture of civilians. The Committee Against Torture said it had received "numerous, consistent and substantiated reports" of widespread abuse in the country. Panel chair Claudio Grossman cited his "particular concern" over allegations of child torture.

People should be outraged when any state brutalizes its citizens. And call out the crimes of their government wherever they occur. The U.S. has zero legitimacy on the issue of torture.
