Warning: This Post Will Ruin Your Day

At least, I hope it does.

A new report called "Broken Laws, Broken Lives" (excuse me for finding this name incredibly ironic given that it involves the US Army) was released today after evaluating the psychological and physical conditions of eleven men who were held in U.S. prison camps overseas between 2001 and 2004. Four of the men were captured in Afghanistan and imprisoned in Guantanamo Bay while seven were imprisoned in Iraq. All were released eventually without ever being charged with a crime.

Former Ft. Hood commanding officer of 2nd Brigade in 4ID, Major General Taguba, makes an appearance in the report:
Retired Major General Antonio Taguba, who led the Army"s first official investigation on Abu Ghraib, said the new evidence suggested a “systematic regime of torture” inside U.S.-run prison camps. (from Democracy Now)
Land of the free. Home of the brave.

But, man, how about those Celtics?
