    Torture in Iraq worse now than under Saddam?

    GENEVA - Torture in Iraq may be worse now than it was under Saddam Hussein, with militias, terrorist groups and government forces disregarding rules on the humane treatment of prisoners, the U.N. anti-torture chief said Thursday.

    Manfred Nowak, the U.N. special investigator on torture, made the remarks as he was presenting a report on detainee conditions at the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay as well as to brief the U.N. Human Rights Council, the global body’s top rights watchdog, on torture worldwide.

    Reports from Iraq indicate that torture “is totally out of hand,†he said. “The situation is so bad many people say it is worse than it has been in the times of Saddam Hussein.â€

    If it's good enough for the CIA, it's good enough for the Iraqis, I guess.

    There is only one logical next step.

    Turn over the torture to private companies and deny responsibility.

    Now wouldn't that be a great twist. And a great Hollywood slasher.

    I have my doubts about this report. The UN "Human Rights Council" ~snicker~ has an agenda that says the US is the most evil thing out there. Nevermind Darfur, nevermind China or Korea or any other nation. The US is the sole evil in the world.

    Are you telling me torture threads are now to be considered torture?

    What a surprise. A thread is started deploring the behaviour of pretty much everyone other than the US currently militarily active in Iraq, and Smeg starts making snide remarks about anti-US conspiracy theories.

    For reference, for the brain-cell deprived;
