Write a 5 pages paper on the reality of torture in the bush administration. Retired brigadier general David Irvine was a prominent critic of the Bush-Cheney human rights violations. He used his position as a journalist to expose the atrocities that the president, his right-hand man, and Richard Rumsfeld not only allowed but authorized. He founded his argument on the accepted definitions of the terms “war crimes” and “torture” that can be found in the Uniform Code of Military Justice, US law and the 1949 Geneva accords. The term ‘war crime’ means any conduct defined as a grave breach of the international conventions signed at Geneva 12 August 1949 or any protocol to such convention to which the United States is a party…which constitutes a violation of common article three of the international conventions signed at Geneva 12 August 1949. Torture means an act committed by a person acting under the color of law specifically intended to inflict severe physical or mental pain or suffering upon another person within his custody or physical control. The article goes on to say that torture includes the causing of “severe mental pain or suffering” from inflicting or threatening to inflict severe physical pain or suffering. It is also defined as administering or threatening to administer mind-altering substances to another. (UCMJ) Despite the legal prohibitions against torture, an overwhelming amount of evidence proves that American forces occupying Iraq did just that to persons it held captive at the Abu Ghraib prison. In June of 2003, Janis Karpinski, an Army reserve brigadier general, was named commander of the 800th Military Police Brigade and put in charge of military prisons in Iraq. Under her administration, a disturbing number of human rights abuses were committed. By January of the next year she had been reprimanded and suspended, and a formal investigation was launched by Lieutenant General Ricardo S. Sanchez, the senior commander in Iraq. .
