Torturers extend "professional courtesy" to one another

The GAO has issued a report which says that the United States has illegally trained "Indonesian, Filipino and Thai police without determining beforehand whether they had a history of human rights violations". Indonesia has denied any such abuses on the part of the troops they sent to the US.

This should come as no surprise. If this administration thinks it's OK for its own armed forces to violate the human rights of those it deems "terrorists", why should they care if others do the same?
