    U.S. Forces Transferred Afghanistan Detainees To Facility Known For Torture

    U.S. Forces Transferred Afghanistan Detainees To Facility Known For Torture Despite Ban: Report

    A new report finds that U.S. forces have transferred Afghan detainees to facilities where evidence of torture was found, in violation of a ban against such transfers.
    The report, conducted by the Afghanistan Independent Human Rights Commission with assistance from the Open Society Foundations, found 11 “credible cases” of U.S. forces transferring individuals to NDS Kandahar in violation of a July 2011 order suspending such transfers. Four of them reported being tortured in NDS custody. The commission is an organization consisting of a group appointed by the government but independent by law.
    Others reported being tortured at a facility called "Mullah Omar's House," a residence of the former Taliban leader which was taken over by Special Forces soldiers and renamed Firebase Maholic. One man claimed he had been taken there and abused by Afghan forces. After sitting in the camp for several hours, he said, "suddenly lashes of cable struck my head and back very hard from behind, they beat me for one hour. They wanted me to tell them who I had relations with. They were all Afghans beating me, though the beating took place in the presence of Americans."

    It's not torture when we do it, it's only when the enemy does it.

    Wonderful logic.

    We need to get out of Afghanistan, right now.

    Wait, that literally made no sense.
