The big Dick replies first, then W, himself - quick to dismiss the report from Amnesty International. If the AI report is getting such play in the W, Rove and Co, they must have struck a nerve. It wouldn't require a response if nothing was amiss.
I'm not as upset about this quick denial as others. Mainly, I am not surprised at all. This is typical behavior for W, Rove and co and I am getting quite used to it.
Of course the folks reporting the atrocities are scathing toward the administration, and , as W said "hate America." If you were tortured for no reason and held without any kind of due process simply becuase your last name was arabic, don't you think you would present your story in a pissed off manner?
Here's a slice from the actual report, which you can read and assess for yourself should you be determined:
Hundreds of detainees continued to be held without charge or trial at the US naval base in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. Thousands of people were detained during US military and security operations in Iraq and Afghanistan and routinely denied access to their families and lawyers.
Military investigations were initiated or conducted into allegations of torture and ill-treatment of detainees by US personnel in Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and into reports of deaths in custody and ill-treatment by US forces elsewhere in Iraq, and in Afghanistan and Guantánamo. Evidence came to light that the US administration had sanctioned interrogation techniques that violated the UN Convention against Torture. Pre-trial military commission hearings opened in Guantánamo but were suspended pending a US court ruling.
