Credible Reports?

U.N. Officials Seek Guantanamo Bay Visit

GENEVA (AP) - U.N. human rights investigators, citing "persistent and credible" reports of torture at the U.S. base in Guantanamo Bay, urged the United States on Thursday to allow them to check conditions there.

The failure of the United States to respond to requests since early 2002 is leading the experts to conclude Washington has something to hide at the Cuban base, said Manfred Nowak, a specialist on torture and a professor of human rights law in Vienna, Austria.

"At a certain point, you have to take well-founded allegations as proven in the absence of a clear explanation by the government," Nowak said."

"Well founded?" "Persistant and credible reports"? From who - released terrorists? Newsweek? Time Magazine? The NY Times? From all these where are "credible reports."

Sound to me as if the UN is throwing a "pick-play" to devert attention from their problems with Oil for Food Scandal and the still developing UN worker rape scandal. Kofi Annan got caught this week Lying his ass off, and all of a sudden we see this.

The conditions at Guantanamo are not torture - in fact, from what I've read conditions for the detainees at Gitmo are better than they are in Senator Durbin's territory at the Cook County Jail.

UPDATE: article stating "medical personnel assisted in interrogations at Guantanamo" See my response here.

Again, "So what?" It's still not toture, and don't give me puff about their right to privacy - they're terrorists!
