    Of course it isnt, besides just about every human rights document and the Geneva Convention we have signed on to describes it as torture.

    Also it was not the government.
    US Soldiers arent part of the government?

    It was some idiots getting their kicks. There might have been torture by government. That was not it.

    I know the Convention and soldiers are only "the government" when they are acting on its behalf.

    If it was hidden then it was probably very very very bad. I remember at the time it claimed it depicted scenes of rape, mutilation and murder. So i guess you can argue its a matter of "national security" if the evidence would make just about the entire world turn against us.
