NO ACCOUNTABILITY

Prisoner at Guantanamo

A report on this blog about US torture exposed by Andy Worthington, authority on and advocate for those whom the US tortured and imprisoned in Guantanamo, included this statement:

“The Senate Intelligence Committee’s torture report…must be the trigger not just for airing of apologies, but for those who instigated and authorized the torture program to be held accountable — up to and including President George W. Bush and Vice President Dick Cheney.”

That was published in December of 2014.  It is now May of 2017 and no one has been held accountable for US torture.

There are many posts on this blog dealing with ongoing US torture.  Instead of closing the Guantanamo prison, Obama left it open, and torture of prisoners is still going on there now. I see no evidence of anyone in the new administration even considering closure.  I wonder if Trump even knows the prison exists, given his level of ignorance in general.

What can we do to stop all US torture, that in US prisons in this country and in its prisons abroad?
