Afghan Prison Abuse
Alleged abuses in Afghanistan prompt changes in prison regime
By STEPHEN GRAHAM | Associated Press Writer
KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — Alleged abuse of prisoners — including three deaths — at U.S. jails in Afghanistan has prompted “very significant changes” in how the military treats detainees, including quicker transfers from jails at outlying bases, a U.S. general said Tuesday.Though three died. Not quite up tto the 23 "detainees" that died in Iraq.
Whew, for a minute there I was worried.
The military opened a formal investigation into the deaths of two Afghans at Bagram’s closely guarded jail in December 2002, but says it has had trouble gathering evidence and has yet to release results.
