New documents obtained by the American Civil Liberties Union show "unjustified homicide" of detainees and concerns about the condition of confinement in U.S.-run prisons in Iraq, Afghanistan and Guantanamo Bay, according to the ACLU.

Thousands of documents detailing the deaths of 190 U.S. detainees were released by the ACLU on Friday. The U.S. military gave the ACLU the documents earlier in the week as a result of a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed by the rights group.

Among the documents are autopsy reports and military investigations, including 25 to 30 cases the ACLU says it believes are "unjustified homicide." Some of the homicides in the documents are widely known and have been reported in the media, such as the case of four Iraqi detainees executed by a group of U.S. soldiers and then pushed into a Baghdad canal in 2007.

I think we all know this happens to some degree, but 190 deaths were released? I'm sure that just scratches the surface. You can't just treat people poorly because they are technically innocent until PROVEN guilty. But because we have this wonderful label called ENEMY COMBATANTS, it does a good job at nullifying the constitution. Oh, well I guess the constitution is obsolete, anyways, right?

America has shown to be incapable in addressing these issues. The International Criminal Court is preparing to step in and put an end to what too many painful lessons in the past have defined as inhumane treatment www.abovetopsecret.com... . Yes this world has many issues and problems, but becoming what you are trying to prevent is not a valid answer.

Agreed, but that's what happens when you have absolute power, you're also absolutely corrupted.
