Now we have documented medical evidence that the Bush administration has committed war crimes, and in this instance the claims of abuse and torture may not be so easliy dismissed by Bush and his co-conspirators.  Physicians for Human Rights, an advocacy group based in Cambridge, Mass released today, the most extensive, comprehensive  report to date on the treatment of former terror suspects.  The former suspects were held at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, the team of doctors confirmed what many former detainee’s have been saying since their release.

 The group alleges finding evidence of U.S. torture and war crimes and accuses U.S. military health professionals of allowing the abuse of detainees, denying them medical care and providing confidential medical information to interrogators that they then exploited.

The most damning allegation was made by a former investigator of the Abu Ghraib torture incident, Maj. General Antonio M. Taguba (USA-Ret.), it the reports preface he states;

After years of disclosures by government investigations, media accounts, and reports from human rights organizations, there is no longer any doubt as to whether the current administration has committed war crimes. The only question is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account.

Will they be held accountable indeed? We must demand that the Bush Administration is held accountable for their heinous acts and atrocious actions. You can find more information and read the report on the groups website, Brokens Laws, Broken Lives.
