From Waterboarding to Rape, Abu Zubaydah Depicts Torture at Black Sites & Gitmo in Graphic Sketches

Please watch this video with an Open Mind. There are enough official records and admissions IN THE PUBLIC DOMAIN that the US government via its Intel Apparatus COMMITTED TORTURE.

I had organised the first public exhibition of Torture Related War Crimes at the Putra World Trade Centre (PWTC) for the Perdana Global Peace Foundation which attracted 30,000 attendees. It was formally officiated by the former Prime Minister Tun Mahathir Mohamad. Internationally renowned Peace and Antiwar leaders were invited to attend.

I was also responsible in organising the world’s first War Crimes Tribunal (the process was in full accordance with established criminal procedures of criminal courts, and the Tribunal Judges consisted of senior Malaysian Retired Federal Court and Court of Appeal Judges together with renowned foreign lawyers). The Tribunal convicted President Bush, Prime Minister Blair etc. for war crimes. Victims of torture gave testimonies, were cross-examined by Defence Counsels and extensive evidence and exhibits were adduced at the proceedings.

The Center for Policy and Research has just published a new report titled “American Torturers: FBI and CIA Abuses at Dark Sites and Guantánamo,” which compiles a series of 40 drawings by Guantánamo Bay prisoner Abu Zubaydah that chronicle the horrific torture he endured since 2002 in CIA dark sites and at Guantánamo Bay, where he has been detained without charge since 2006.

The United Nations Working Group on Arbitrary Detention has issued a new call for the United States to release him immediately. We speak with one of his attorneys, Mark Denbeaux, and CIA whistleblower John Kiriakou, who exposed the Bush-era torture program and was the only official jailed in connection to it.
