Well, I'm glad THAT'S settled!

The Pentagon has cleared the Pentagon of mistreatment of detainees in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo.
The latest and most wide-ranging abuse report, by Navy inspector general Vice Admiral Albert Church, concluded that its policies did not lead to the abuse of detainees in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantanamo, and found no 'explicit' pressure from top officials to use extreme interrogation methods. The report was condemned by Human Rights Watch. "This looks like another whitewash. Almost a year after the Abu Ghraib pictures, we still haven't had an independent investigation into the widespread prison abuse by someone not appointed by or subordinate to Secretary Rumsfeld," the organization's special counsel, Reed Brody, said.
