Torture at Gitmo

Call it stating the obvious, but, according to the BBC, a new U.N. draft report suggests that the "[t]reatment of detainees at Guantanamo Bay constitutes torture in some cases and violates international law".

More: "The report suggests some of the treatment of detainees at Guantanamo Bay meets the definition of torture under the UN Convention Against Torture."

Not that the Bush Administration cares much about such international conventions. Whatever McCain might say, torture is, well, quite presidential.

We don't torture... except when we do.
