Amnesty International Report on US Detention Practices

Amnesty International has released a harshly critical, very detailed report on US detention practices. The Bush administration's invocation of necessity and exceptionalism was easily predictable to any Milquetoast dystopian, including OBL. Its studied contempt for the rule of law has stained our global image, undermining any real effort at human rights promotion. If time is limited, search for the "Words Undone by Deeds" section.

Phil Carter's Washington Monthly piece on Abu Ghraib, placing accountability where it belongs, is also a must read.
