The only real torture is American torture

Nine days ago, the US military released a captured Al-Queda torture manual as well as photos of some of the victims of that estimable organisation.

News Busters has kept an eye on coverage.

To their credit, CNN and Fox News Channel ran stories on the declassified material. Yet nine days since the material was released, neither ABC, CBS, NBC, The New York Times nor The Washington Post has run a story with the photos of this shocking evidence of al-Qaeda’s barbarism.

I just did a search on the BBC, The Telegraph, The Times and The Independent and found the same. Lots about Guantanamo, of course.
