US Response to UN Tribunal Should Be: Name, Rank and Serial Number

US State Dept. lawyers had to meet with the UN’s Committee Against Torture today to answer charges that the US has been torturing prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and other places.
I pity the federal lawyers who had to go to Geneva in order to sit in some sort of United Nations “courtroom” and listen to how the US is the bane of modern existence. The Gateway Pundit has a typically thorough rundown on this story in US Gets Blasted by UN for Its "Climate of Torture" at Geneva Court.

It is very interesting to note that the “court” will demand that the US turn over classified information, thus the title of this post. In addition to the US, the “court’s” commission will look into torture allegations concerning Georgia, Guatemala, Qatar, and Togo. Are these people serious? There has been no torture in Cuba, in North Korea, in Russia or its former satelites? Huh, I guess that the world is in better shape than I thought it was.
