Report: Syria running 27 torture centers

Human Rights Watch says Damascus' intelligence agencies inflicting gruesome torture on hundreds of detainees

The Syrian intelligence agencies are running torture centers across the country where detainees are beaten with batons and cables, burned with acid, sexually assaulted, and their fingernails torn out, Human Rights Watch said in a report released on Tuesday.

The New York-based rights group identified 27 detention centers that it says intelligence agencies have been using since President Bashar Assad's government began a crackdown in March 2011 on pro-democracy protesters trying to oust him.
 . . .
The United Nations has said more than 10,000 people have been killed during the 16-month Syria conflict.

Questionable considering everything else we've heard.


George Soros funded?


The most ironic, hypocritical aspect of this report, however, is the fact that Syria and Assad are being targeted as having committed “crimes against humanity” for allegedly doing the very things that the United States is admittedly doing in places like Guantanamo Bay, Bagram Air Force Base and numerous black sites around the world. United States government has even claimed the right to imprison, torture, and kill American citizens at its own discretion.

"The reach and inhumanity of this network of torture centers are truly horrific," Ole Solvang, emergencies researcher at Human Rights Watch said. "Russia should not be holding its protective hand over the people who are responsible for this."


Where is George Soros in this, Dos?   Are you suggesting he's suborned HRW?

Dos, where is your source for 'information' that this kind of thing has gone on at GITMO, etc?


And how, in your mind, does that make any difference ?
