DOCUMENT INFO
Description: Torture is now tied to images of the Abu Ghraib prison, run by Americans in Iraq; to the detention facility on Guantnamo Bay, also run by Americans; and to a legal act called "extraordinary rendition," a term that is a euphemism for sending detainees to countries where they may be tortured. The victim must experience intense pain or suffering of the kind that is equivalent to the pain that would be associated with serious physical injury so severe that death, organ failure, or permanent damage resulting in a loss of significant body function will likely result (Office of Legal Counsel, Memorandum for Alberto R. Gonzales, Counsel to the President 2002).\n Further, as the references above to these lower court decisions make plain, some federal judges have adopted the proposition that individuals alleging torture can be denied access to courts.
