Rigorous clinical evaluations confirm the enormous and enduring toll of agony and anguish inflicted for months by US personnel on 11 men who were detained without any charge in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantánamo Bay.

We, the undersigned, agree with Maj. General Antonio M. Taguba (USA-Ret.), who wrote in the preface to Broken Laws, Broken Lives:

[T]here 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.

Because the United States is founded on principles of human rights and equal justice under law, we call on the US government to:

  • fully investigate and hold accountable those who ordered torture;
  • issue an official apology to survivors of torture in Iraq, Afghanistan, and Guantánamo Bay;
  • and make reparation, including compensation and medical and psycho-social services.
