A federal appeals court has revived a lawsuit against CACI International Inc that accused the defense contractor's employees of directing the torture of detainees at the Abu Ghraib prison near Baghdad.

LOL someone put panties on a muzies head, should have had a mass beheading.
It’s really laughable that non-American terrorists can have their day in court, while Americans can’t. It’s also laughable that liberals spend so much time and effort defending these terrorists, when the terrorists will just slit their throats or blow up their urban lofts as their way of saying “thank you”.
Quite frankly, these vile little beasts should have been euthanized the moment they refused to give out more useful information to the military. If ISIS ever tries to take over America, the Surrendercrats are going to be the first to greet them with open arms.
The New York Times needs somewhere to lay blame...and that CAN NOT be Obama’s foreign policy or Islam. They’ll gladly forgive Al-Baghdadi, a former detainee, for his acts if they can blame Bush. Blaming Bush, as always, is of paramount importance.
Indeed, if panties on the head is torture, maybe I have a case against my high school administration from 25 years ago.
