    U.N. Panel Backs Closing Prison at Guantánamo

    By JOHN O'NEIL
    Published: May 19, 2006
    A United Nations panel on torture called on the United States today to close the detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and expressed concern over reports of secret detention centers and of a practice of sending terror suspects to countries with poor human rights records.

    In the report, issued by the Committee on Torture in Geneva, the panel said that the United States should clearly ban interrogation techniques like "water boarding," in which an inmate is held under water to create the fear of drowning; sexual humiliation, and the use of dogs to induce fear. It said that detainees had died during interrogation involving improper techniques...

    The U.N. is a failure, and it's time to dissolve that money sucking waste of time and energy.

    Maybe because the Humanitarian Committee want to keep that exclusive right of blundering and torturing all to themselves and do not want to share!

    This must be a UN approved prison

    "Terror inmates stay connected, call mom by cell phone

    Kenitra Central Prison is one of the highest security facilities in Morocco. But leading Al Qaida inmates get to call their wives and mothers every day — not to mention their terrorist commanders.

    How do they do it? Simple. Moroccan prison guards are too scared to enter jail cells to look for stashes of cell phones."

    Looks like the joke posting from NRG (I think) about mothers day phone calls being tracked was not that far off.

    I bet the inhumane torture, is that the Al Qaida members are required to pay roaming charges on the calls they make

    Sorry, just don't have a whole lot of sympathy for terrorist.

    I tried to give him the benefit of the doubt and maybe he saw it in the full UN report, it seems he is pretty well connected with them.

    That's exactly the problem with gitmo. No one was ever tried openly of any charges.

    I'm curious. Is it the UN or the concept of a UN that you object to?

    My post was in reference to the prison in Morocco and the reply from Blaze on the UN wanting to close that one also. But, are you in favor for military trials for the suspects at Gitmo?

    Excuse my comment then.

    Off the top of my head, I would be in favor of the gitmo prisoners being charged publicly with something and given a speedy trial. Whether a military trial would be acceptable I'm not sure of the details.
