US Military Launches Inquiry Into Torture Allegations at Cameroon Base
ktla ^ | 08/04/2017

Posted on 08/04/2017 5:22:12 PM PDT by BenLurkin

The allegations were first made by Amnesty International in a report published in July. Their report said dozens of suspected supporters of the terror group Boko Haram “were held incommunicado, tortured, and sometimes killed by Cameroonian security forces in facilities run by the military and intelligence services.”

Amnesty alleges that Cameroon’s Rapid Intervention Battalion, an elite army unit, was one of the units that engaged in torture, doing so at the military base known as Salak, near the northern city of Maroua.

...

Amnesty called on the US and the French government, which it says also used the base, “to investigate the degree to which its personnel may have been aware of the widespread practices of illegal detention and torture at the base.”

US special operations forces advisers have been assisting local African militaries in the Lake Chad Basin area as those countries battle Boko Haram.

Only sometimes killed?
Boka Haram should always be killed.

Boko Haram deserves what it gets and does not deserve intervention to intervention against what it deserves.

Well, after all Amnesty International is not a grass roots organization in any sense of the word.

It is funded by grants from variouz governments and from several massive NGOs around the world.

Basically, it is a propaganda machine for the NWO and it does not in any way answer to groups that form chapters.

There was a group at Oklahoma State when I attended but it disbanded when there was no answer to questions they had about brutal dictators which Amnesty was championing.

When the little boy screams in the Afghan night from inside the raucous tent our guys are given the Cultural Relativism full-court press, “That’s the way THEY do it, here..! Don’t do anything..!!”

But lo and behold when instead it’s the adult fundamentalists doing the screaming —and for completely different reasons— all of a sudden they go all Mom & Apple Pie and a million lawyers carrying moldy tomes come out of the woodwork for a Full Review.

WHICH IS IT, FER CRYING OUT LOUD...?

Can’t have it both ways.

Boko Harum is an all Mooselimb insurgency operating in Nigeria and surrounding countries.

These Mooselimbs should all be executed with bullets soaked in pigs blood for all the murders they have committed against Christian humanity!

For crying out loud, these guys have stood outside Christian Churches in Nigeria and burned the building and Christian worshippers with children inside the church and if they tried to escape they would be machine gunned down by these Mooselimbs.

Do you think Boko Harum are nice Mooselimbs???

Boko Harum is a bunch of Mooselimb Crazed, Treacherous, Traitorous, Murderers of humanity in Nigeria.

You take out the Mooselimb Boko Harum and the Christian Nigerian would thrive and live in peace.

Just turn the Boko Haram “supporters” over to their surviving victims. I'm sure that they will be treated with the respect they deserve. (Hint, during the wars with the Native Americans, captives feared the women much more than the men.)

Boko Haram and/or ISIS - they should get the same treatment they provide prisoners, and when they are of no more intelligence value given the same endings as would Boko Haram and/or ISIS. Both groups and those they might recruit should learn they are setting the standards for their own fate.
