Newly Unredacted Torture Documents Reveal Deaths, Abuse

Back in 2006, we received the heavily redacted Church Report, an investigative report of Department of Defense interrogation operations by Vice Admiral Albert T. Church. Well, in addition to receiving thousands of pages of Criminal Investigation Division reports on detainee deaths in Iraq and Afghanistan, we've just received some less-redacted pages from the Church Report—and this is what they were hiding:

Unredacted

The newly unredacted part reads:

The behavior alleged in the December 2002 Bagram death cases was clearly abusive, and clearly not in keeping with any approved interrogation policy or guidance. In both instances, the deaths followed interrogation sessions in which unauthorized techniques were allegedly employed, but in both cases, these sessions were followed by further alleged abusive behavior outside of the interrogation booth. In light of the uncertainty, the cases are considered for purposes of this report to be interrogation related.

If the redacted version tells of detainees dying after being subjected to unauthorized interrogation techniques and further abuse outside the interrogation booth, well, it makes you wonder what's in the right-hand column...

TORTURE IS *NOT* LIMITED TO GITMO/SECRET PRISON RENDITION/IRAQ.

DOMESTIC TORTURE IS HAPPENING NATIONWIDE, BY WAY OF BUSH DOJ- AUTHORIZED RADIATION WEAPONS ASSAULTS ON U.S. CITIZENS UNJUSTLY TARGETED AS "UNDESIRABLES"...

...INCLUDING "DISSIDENTS," THE (ALLGEDLY) MENTALLY ILL, AND PERSONS SLANDERED AS "TROUBLEMAKERS" AND "DEVIATES."

VIRTUALLY ANY POLICE CHIEF IN AMERICA CAN VERIFY THE EXISTENCE OF THESE ONGOING "PROGRAMS OF PERSONAL DESTRUCTION..."

...BECAUSE LAW ENFORCEMENT KNOWS ABOUT THE NATIONWIDE NETWORK OF CIVILIAN VIGILANTE OPERATIVES...

...RECRUITED FROM FEDERALLY-FUNDED COMMUNITY POLICING AND ANTI-TERRORISM GROUPS...

...THAT COMPRISES THE "STREET MUSCLE" OF THIS "AMERICAN GESTAPO."

WILL ACLU PLEASE BEGIN MAKING INQUIRIES AMONG ENLIGHTENED LOCAL LAW ENFORCEMENT IN THEIR CHAPTER REGIONS? NOW THAT WORD IS OUT, OFFICERS OF CONSCIENCE ARE COMING FORWARD...

...IF ONLY TO MITIGATE THEIR COMPLICITY.
