    US torture and abuse is widespread, systematic and sanctioned

    The Japan Times reports: Stop the torture and abuse

    Recently, The New York Times has reported on a U.S. Army file that details widespread abuse in Afghanistan. According to the paper, "The file depicts young, poorly trained soldiers in repeated incidents of abuse." In some cases, the abuse "was directed or carried out by interrogators to extract information." At least eight Afghans have died in U.S. custody. Two deaths were highlighted in the army file, but it also includes reports of torture, beatings and humiliation. Other documents obtained and released by the American Civil Liberties Union show that such abuse occurs throughout U.S. detention facilities worldwide.
