The deplorable condition of khadr clearly shows the cruelty of americans on war prisoners...if they are behaveing like this with 15 yr old girl..so we can easily guess what they do with their elder enemies...like saddan husain.or others..With this it is clear that there is no international law which can bound America..america is free to do anything...war,human right voilation....

Very well-written, Auri! I especially liked your analysis of the Supreme Court judgement-- I agree, it's sad but legally sound. Looking forward to reading more!

Very good piece. Good that you guys are thinking about the west and east. very interesting read. There are many such human rights violations that the West has committed. These articles provide an interesting angle to most Indians who think only Muslims are terrorists and Middle Easterns are terrorits, while even the West and Non Muslims are also spreading terror in the name of justice and terror protection.
