CIA Torture. United States Violate Geneva Conventions to Which All Other NATO Members, and The EU, are Parties

Given that Senator Dianne Feinstein, chair of the U.S. Senate intelligence committee, is an admitted supporter of AIPAC and the government of Binyamin Netanyahu that routinely uses torture in its prisons and detention centres, her exhortation of ‘never again’ is apparently a hollow piece of political hyperbole.

The Netanyahu government not only implicitly endorses the use of torture but is alleged by both the United Nations and, yesterday, by Amnesty International, of having committed war crimes in Gaza when it deliberately ordered the bombing of blocks of residential flats during its attack in August, leaving hundreds of civilians either dead, injured or homeless.

Yet no action has yet been taken to bring those alleged responsible before the International Criminal Court.

Why not? Is the United States and its client state, totally outside of international law and the provisions of the Geneva Conventions to which the rest of the free world is subscribed?
