Update on the UN Committee against Torture

We noted here what I titled a nuanced U.S. position on torture.

Lawfare now reports: "On Friday, the United Nations Committee against Torture released its report (full text) on U.S. compliance with the Convention Against Torture."  It appears the report is "critical" in parts of the U.S.

The Guardian (UK) has a piece here, in which the paper argues:
In a review of the human rights record of the US, the first of its kind since 2006, the world body’s committee against torture slams the country for its ongoing violations of international treaties.
