Widespread abuse of human rights.


In the case of Abu Ghraib prison photos emerged showing American troops both male and female abusing and humiliating Iraqi prisoners.

At Guantanamo Bay detainees have been held without trial for years with torture taking place. Many have been taken not as POW's but by extraordinary rendition, that is abducted in other countries and in some cases sold to the Americans by bounty hunters.

This is from a country which is supposed to be promoting democracy and leader of the Free World.
