CCHR Broken a presentation by Farnoosh Hashemian of Physicians for Human Rights (PHR)

“After years of disclosures by government investigations, media accounts, and reports from human rights organizations, there is no longer any doubt as to whether the current administration has committed war crimes. The only question is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account.”
- Maj. General Antonio M. Taguba (USA-Ret.), preface to Broken Laws, Broken Lives
