The BBC reports that an Iranian diplomat freed last week claims that that his CIA captors tortured him. It wouldn’t be surprising; the US has a history of violating human rights, as previously stated.

The statement of Whitehouse spokesman, Gordon Johndroe, is amusing:

This is just the latest theatrics of a government trying to deflect attention away from its own unacceptable actions

The irony of this statement is hilarious, coming from the spokesman of a government that invaded one country and wrecked it (Afghanistan), so it invaded another to deflect attention away from this, and made an even bigger mess (Iraq), and is now trying to deflect attention away from that, and get support for a war on Iran.

Oh, and not one of the British sailors released by Iran was tortured. The US could learn a thing or two from the Iranians about how to treat captives.
