Torture and Death at Bagram

Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo, and now Bagram.

More bad apples to report.

The New York Times reported Friday (May 20) on the death of two Afghan inmates that took place atBagram Collection Point in December 2002. The story emerged from a nearly 2,000-page confidential file of the Army's criminal investigation into the case, a copy of which was obtained by The New York Times.

The most chilling aspect of the story(besides the death of these two men at the hands of the U.S. military) is that, "many of the Bagram interrogators, led by the same operations officer, Capt. Carolyn A. Wood, were redeployed to Iraq and in July 2003 took charge of interrogations at the Abu Ghraib prison."

Meanwhile, Bush vows for closer ties with Afghanistan.

Will we ever learn?
