Steven in an open thread at Dkos caught this breaking report from Yahoo News:
that the US just responded to the UN Human Committee Against Torture request for information…ADMITTING that there has been torture…”They said it was a question of isolated cases, that there was nothing systematic and that the guilty were in the process of being punished.” The US report said that those involved were low-ranking members of the military and that their acts were not approved by their superiors, the member added.”
Hmm, but no acknowledgement that torture is currently occurring now, and no taking responsibility for giving the okay in the first place. Just blame the other guy…in this case, the soldiers they trained. Different day, same tactic…blame others. Such…Patriots.
