U.S. on the Torture List

As they say, you'll be known by the company you keep. A training manual for Canadian diplomats lists the U.S. as a place where prisoners risk torture and abuse, citing interrogation techniques such as stripping prisoners, blindfolding and sleep deprivation.The document, released Friday, singled out the U.S. detention center at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. U.S. joins Israel, Afghanistan, China, Egypt, Iran, Saudi Arabia, Mexico and Syria as a place where inmates could face torture.
