Major General Antonio Taguba, USA (Ret.)
Please join Physicians for Human Rights and Retired US Army Major General Antonio Mario Taguba this Tuesday, April 14, 2009, 4:00-6:15 PM for an exciting afternoon of discussion, debate and dialogue on torture by US forces in the war against terror—and how we can hold accountable those who committed these heinous crimes. The discussion will be held at Austin Hall North, Harvard Law School, Cambridge, MA. (Google map, Harvard campus map).
General Taguba is the author of the 2004 Taguba Report, an internal US Army report on detainee abuse at Abu Ghraib prison in Iraq. He has testified before Congress on the issue of detainee abuse, and in the preface of the 2008 Physicians for Human Rights publication Broken Laws, Broken Lives he wrote that
[T]here is no longer any doubt as to whether the [Bush] Administration has committed war crimes. The only question that remains to be answered is whether those who ordered the use of torture will be held to account.
This event is co-sponsored by Physicians for Human Rights, the Human Rights Program at Harvard Law School, Harvard Law Student Advocates for Human Rights, HLS ACLU, and the National Security and Law Association.
