Did the U.S. CIA lie to the Red Cross?

Did the CIA Lie to the Red Cross?

By Daphne Eviatar 4/14/09

Yup, that’s what Jane Mayer told Alternet’s Liliana Segura: the Defense Department actually hid prisoners from the International Committee of the Red Cross when the humanitarian group first visited the U.S. prison camp at Guantanamo Bay in 2002.

“That’s an overt act; lying to the Red Cross, hiding prisoners from them,” Mayer said.

The ICRC is supposed to be the neutral body that monitors’ countries compliance with the Geneva Conventions and other international law. So, is lying to the Red Cross akin to obstruction of justice?…

Under the Bush Administration, did the CIA commit war crimes by hiding prisoners from the Red Cross? Doesn’t our country have to deal with possible war crimes? Alternet asks, “If Obama refuses to prosecute or extradite accused war criminals, the US should abandon its bid for a UN human rights panel seat, stop producing human rights reports on other countries, and sit in ignominious silence as a member of the rogues’ gallery with Iran, Saudi Arabia, North Korea, Libya and, yes, Israel.”
