    Figures.
    Another irrelevant childlike emotive failure to address the topic.

    Again. Not a problem for me. But it is obviously one for you.

    So do you have anything relevant to say in regards to the topic? Or are we done here?

    Irrelevant childlike emotive argument noted again.
    I see we have entered deep into troll territory here.
    Many Trump supporters have lots of problems, and those deplorables are bringing those problems to us. They’re racists. They’re misogynists. They’re islamophobic. They're xenophobes and homophobes. And some, I assume, are good people.

    You give a bad name to ex-convicts. I have 2 friends in that category, and they are much more respectful and mature than you come across here.

    I believe the majority of the citizens in the U.S. have a message for Zeid Raad al-Hussein. "Kiss our Grits". What a pathetic hypocritical display of lack of impartiality. They themselves can not even begin to reach the level of self righteous morality they cherry pick to impose upon a certain few. For these people by their very policies have become enablers of the spread of this Islamofacist terrorist activity. They turn a blind eye to the leaders who allow it to fester within their borders and not holding them accountable for their hideous human rights violations. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) while under the guise of humanitarian aid have been caught on different occasions as being enablers. primarily staffed by people sympathetic to the terrorist groups who have allowed UN facilities/vehicles to be used by terrorists and look the other way while these animals murder many. Peacekeepers my ass.

    There you go displaying your inability to focus on the topic, showing all that you have no valid argument.

    It's not clear, however, how human rights officials think these prosecutions will take place, since the Justice Department has declined to prosecute and the U.S. is not a member of the International Criminal Court.

    Zeid Raad al-Hussein, the U.N. high commissioner for human rights, said it's "crystal clear" under international law that the United States, which ratified the U.N. Convention Against Torture in 1994, now has an obligation to ensure accountability.

    "In all countries, if someone commits murder, they are prosecuted and jailed. If they commit rape or armed robbery, they are prosecuted and jailed. If they order, enable or commit torture ? recognized as a serious international crime ? they cannot simply be granted impunity because of political expediency," he said.

    U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon hopes the U.S. Senate Intelligence Committee report on the CIA's harsh interrogation techniques at secret overseas facilities is the "start of a process" toward prosecutions, because the "prohibition against torture is absolute," Ban's spokesman said.

    Ben Emmerson, the U.N.'s special rapporteur on counterterrorism and human rights, said the report released Tuesday shows "there was a clear policy orchestrated at a high level within the Bush administration, which allowed (it) to commit systematic crimes and gross violations of international human rights law."

    He said international law prohibits granting immunity to public officials who allow the use of torture, and this applies not just to the actual perpetrators but also to those who plan and authorize torture.

    The only CIA agent who has been jailed to date for anything to do with torture is John Kiriakou, for whistleblowing on the CIA torture program.
    Fan-f@ckingtastic!!!

    Round up the traitorous assholes and throw them in Gitmo.

    I realize nothing will probably come from this...but I support it 100% and if the U.N. need a bounty hunter to find these losers...if they pay my expenses, I will do it for otherwise nothing.
