UN human rights experts have asked to see all prisoners held by the US in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay.

A group of 31 experts issued a rare joint statement on concerns about the effects of some US counter-terrorism measures on human rights worldwide.

Here we go. First immunity from the World Court is denied to US Soldiers, now the UN's experts begin to apply pressure to see the U.S.'s prisoners. I remember when the UN was a controlled by third world countries like Lybia, Cuba, etc. It (UN) seemed alot less dangerous then.

"However, Mr van Boven warned against singling out the US for criticism, stressing that earlier this year he presented to the UN a study detailing alleged torture in 80 countries around the world.

"We have to try not to be selective. We should be aware that there are many problems in other places," Mr van Boven said.

As an example, he mentioned the troubled Russian republic of Chechnya, where the Russian army fighting rebels is accused of abusing the rights of civilians."


I don't have a problem with them checking out Gitmo or any other facility as long as they check out EVERYBODY'S facilities with equal enthusiasm. I also would want an independant group to go, not anyone with any kind of agenda against any country. Maybe Amnesty International or something... someone who doesn't have any type of political interest, just humanitarian interests, at heart.
