"Evidence of alleged torture is suppressed, after alleged American threats"

 "…they expressed surprise "that a democracy governed by the rule of law would expect a court in another democracy to suppress…evidence [that] was relevant to allegations of torture…" Mr Miliband's lawyers confirmed that under the Obama administration the position had not changed."

This short article in the Economist has me irritated with our new administration. It's past time for us to be open regarding our treatment of prisoners, and allegations of torture should be investigated fully. This sounds too much like what's his name's administration.
