Old Torture

According to the NYT, the Pentagon has reopened an investigation into allegations that four Iraqi reporters (3 working for Reuters, 1 for NBC) were tortured at Forward Operating Base Volturno in January.

The case "could provide evidence that maltreatment of prisoners occurred elsewhere in Iraq." The initial investigation concluded that the "soldiers involved acted within the applicable rules of engagement, policies and procedures." Unfortunately, that statement now appears to be in no way inconsistent with the allegations of torture.
