USA: Human dignity denied: Torture and accountability in the 'war on terror'
With this report, Amnesty International seeks to provide a framework by which there can be a full accounting for any torture or cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment by US agents, and to prevent future violations of international law and standards. Part One of the report gives an overview of the situation. Part Two is entitled "Agenda for Action", and begins with a reiteration of Amnesty International's call for a full commission of inquiry into all US "war on terror" detention and interrogation practices and policies. The remainder of Part Two is structured around Amnesty International's 12-point Program for the Prevention of Torture by Agents of the State.
