Black Panthers’ and the San Francisco Eight,

The Abu Ghraib/Guantanamo Connection

Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo and “extraordinary rendition” have exposed the ugly reality that the U.S. employs and backs torture in prisons and detention facilities around the world in direct violation of international law.
