Democracy Now: New Case of Waterboarding of Foreign Prisoner Revealed


In a new report, Human Rights Watch also reveals a previously unknown instance of waterboarding by the U.S. government. Mohammed Shoroeiya, a Libyan national, describes being waterboarded in Afghanistan by U.S. jailers, contradicting the Bush administration’s claim that the torture technique was just used on three high-profile prisoners. The revelation is expected to fuel speculation that waterboarding was far more widespread than the United States has disclosed. The news comes days after the Justice Department announced it will not prosecute anyone involved in the killing and torturing of prisoners in CIA custody after a three-year investigation.
