Hanan Salah of Human Rights Watch discusses HRW’s report on how the CIA and UK Secret Service (in 2005-06) captured anti-Gaddafi “militants” living abroad, often tortured them, and sent them back to Gaddafi for further torture; the irony that many of these Libyans are in the new government and de facto allies of the US and NATO; evidence that the Bush administration lied about waterboarding being limited to the “big 3” 9/11 conspirators; other medieval US torture practices; new photographic evidence Ibn al-Shaykh al-Libi didn’t commit suicide in a Libyan prison in 2009; and why the US government should (but won’t) admit guilt, make reparations, and prosecute the guilty.
