The Dreaded T-Word
US Army Major General George Fay has conducted an investigation into the abuses at the Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad and, according to this report, acknowledged that US forces tortured the detainees. For most of us, it has been clear for quite some time that alleged actions of some of the soldiers,- some of the said actions depicted in the now-famous photographs and videos,- do indeed constitute torture. I am happy the military finally found it in themselves to acknowledge as much. Better late than never.
