US troops executing prisoners in Afghanistan, journalist says

The journalist who helped break the story that detainees at the Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq were being tortured by their US jailers told an audience at a journalism conference last month that American soldiers are now executing prisoners in Afghanistan.

I'll tell you right now, one of the great tragedies of my country is that Mr. Obama is looking the other way, because equally horrible things are happening to prisoners, to those we capture in Afghanistan," Hersh said. "They're being executed on the battlefield. It's unbelievable stuff going on there that doesn't necessarily get reported. Things don't change.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

There has been absolutely no changes between the Bush and Obama Administrations; simply a terrifying continuity, all at the expense of the people whose countries we occupy, and at the expense of the American people.
