SEXUAL TORTURE-- Your Tax Dollars at Work

I am no longer proud to be an American. Damn you, George W. Bush for destroying my country. We are now culpable for this evil nation if we DO NOT fight against it!
British Judges Threaten Intervention in Gitmo Torture Case http://i4.democracynow.org/2008/10/23/headlines#16
In other news from Britain, the British High Court has condemned the Bush administration for refusing to turn over documents in the case of a Guantanamo Bay prisoner who says he was tortured in US custody.
The prisoner, Binyam Mohamed, alleges his confession to terrorism charges was given only after he had his penis sliced by a blade.
The State Department has previously warned releasing the documents would cause "serious and lasting damage" to security relations between the US and Britain and jeopardize British "national security." In a new ruling, the British judges say they might intervene to compel the White House to hand over the documents to Mohamed's lawyers.
