Pentagon Blocks Graphic Abuse Images

Pentagon blocks graphic photosThe Pentagon is refusing to release a trove of graphic photos showing U.S. troops abusing detainees, arguing that doing so would play into ISIS’s hands.

It’s a bit of a counterintuitive argument, because the photos were all taken from investigations into detainee abuse during the early days of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars—long before ISIS existed.

Nevertheless, Rear Admiral Sinclair Harris told a federal court in a declassified declaration filed late Friday, that all 2,100-plus photos should be kept from public view.

Yet no apology: CIA’s mistaken detention destroyed German man’s life

CIA destroys man taken by mistakeKhalid al Masri is a broken man today. A decade after the CIA snatched him by mistake, flew him half way around the world in secret, and questioned him as part of its detention and interrogation program, he’s yet to recover.

He’s abandoned his home. He no longer is part of the lives of his wife or children. Friends can’t find him. His attorneys can’t find him. German foreign intelligence will say only that he’s “somewhere in a western-leaning Arab nation.”

The CIA Didn’t Just Torture, It Experimented on Human Beings

Torture program not just tortureHuman experimentation was a core feature of the CIA’s torture program. The experimental nature of the interrogation and detention techniques is clearly evident in the Senate Intelligence Committee’s executive summary of its investigative report, despite redactions (insisted upon by the CIA) to obfuscate the locations of these laboratories of cruel science and the identities of perpetrators.

At the helm of this human experimentation project were two psychologists hired by the CIA, James Mitchell and Bruce Jessen. They designed interrogation and detention protocols that they and others applied to people imprisoned in the agency’s secret “black sites.”

Feds sue NYC over Rikers Island jail violence

Feds sue NYCFederal prosecutors sued New York City on Thursday to speed the pace of reforms at the Rikers Island jail complex and address what a Justice Department investigation found was a "deep-seated culture of violence" against young inmates.

Judge throws out 1944 conviction of teenA judge threw out the conviction Wednesday of black teen executed 70 years ago for the deaths of two white girls.

The girls had disappeared in March 1944 while riding their bicycles, and their bludgeoned bodies were found in a watery ditch along a road in the town, about 70 miles north of Charleston.

CIA torture: health professionals 'may have committed war crimes', report says

CIA torture health professionalsHealth professionals who assisted in the CIA’s torture programme of terror suspects “betrayed the most fundamental duty of the healing professions” and may have committed war crimes, according to a hard-hitting report released on Tuesday.

Physicians for Human Rights (PHR) called for a federal commission to investigate the full extent of health professionals’ participation in CIA torture following last week’s release of the US Senate Select Committee on Intelligence (SSCI) report on the agency’s detention and interrogation programme.
