Torture and Responsibility

Torture was the topic during the first half of International Organizations and Law this evening. (I'm guessing there wasn't a lot said about that at the Republican National Convention tonight.) Here are links to some of the documents ("torture memos") and photographs:

The Washington Post web site has helpfully collected "Bush
Administration Documents on Interrogation" here.

A collection of photos from Abu Ghraib is available here.

This DefenseLink article reports Secretary Rumsfeld's acceptance of responsibility.

Human Rights Watch reports on the Abu Ghraib scandal here.

None of this is pleasant.
