Medical examinations of former terrorism suspects held by the U.S. military at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq and Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, found evidence of torture and other abuse that resulted in serious injuries and mental disorders, according to a human rights group.

For the most extensive medical study of former U.S. detainees published so far, Physicians for Human Rights had doctors and mental health professionals examine 11 former prisoners. The group alleges finding evidence of U.S. torture and war crimes and accuses U.S. military health professionals of allowing the abuse of detainees, denying them medical care and providing confidential medical information to interrogators that they then exploited.

Exam proves torture and abuse

I think it was pretty much known and agreed by the masses that torture was taking place, but this is just one more nail in the coffin that proves the abuses that were going on. And remember, these exams were done on FORMER prisoners...meaning they were released, no crimes...innocent people.

Why have the powers that be in the US administration not been held accountable for these crimes?
