US court deems that Abu Ghraib torture victims now have to pay their own torturers

category international | anti-war / imperialism | news report author Saturday September 28, 2013 21:46author by lefty Report this post to the editors

The victims of Abu Ghraib torture sued, in a US court, the private company, CACI, hired to do the torturing. They lost. Brazenly CACI counter sued the victims in the same court and WON.
The Abu Ghraib victims now have to pay their torturers 14,000 dollars in costs. Ridiculous!

Watch the video. Disgusting!!



No doubt the verdict went something like this perhaps:

"Yes....That'll be 10k for the actual torture plus an extra 3k extra surcharge for total humiliation. Oh and 1k for medical treatment for the guard who injured his fist on your face"

What do people think of the fact that these brazen private military contracting corporations were able to sue the victims of their torture on technicalities like this in a US court and WIN!! Is there no justice in this world?

Here is a link to some of the horrific Abu Ghraib torture photos:

Interestingly, private torture contractor, CACI, also voted #1 war profiteer on Alternet

Press TV have covered this too, (but it has sank like a stone in the MSM):
