Group accuses Jordan of torturing for U.S. - Yahoo! News

Surprise, surprise. Nothing the Bushites do can really surprise us anymore. It seems they are capable of anything.

Of course, the exrtaordinary rendintions began under Clinton. Let's not forget that.

Group accuses Jordan of torturing for U.S. - Yahoo! News:

LONDON - Security agents in Jordan are torturing terrorism suspects on behalf of the United States in hopes of forcing confessions, the human rights watchdog Amnesty International contended in a new report Monday.

The report said its investigators had identified about 10 suspected cases of men subjected to rendition from U.S. custody to interrogation centers in Jordan, a close U.S. ally in the Middle East.

'Jordan appears to be a central hub in a global complex of secret detention centers operated by the U.S. in coordination with foreign intelligence agencies,' said Malcolm Smart, director of Amnesty's Middle East and North Africa unit and an author of the report.

The United States has consistently said it does not permit suspects to be shipped to countries that practice torture.
