Silence deafening when U.S. is torture target

  • Amnesty International has declared June “Torture Awareness Month.”
  • The United Nations has declared June 26 to be “International Day in Support of Survivors and Victims of Torture.”

21 June 2006: Excerpted from the article written yesterday by Jules Crittenden pertaining to the torture and murder of our two soldiers:

There has been a great deal of international outcry about detainees’ humiliation, their exposure to barking dogs, sleep deprivation, and general discomfort, measures designed to disorient them, break their spirit and make them talk.There have been calls for investigations that continue despite ongoing investigations that have led to prosecutions.

The silence when hostages’ heads are sawn off is deafening.
