|Title:||ASIL Insights: The Committee Against Torture Urges an End to Guantánamo Detention|
|Description:||Diane Marie Amann reports on the conclusions, issued in May 2006, of the UN's Committee Against Torture, which call for "several changes in U.S. policy – among them, a call for closure of the four-and-a-half-year-old detention camp at Guantánamo."
Professor Amann proceeds to describe the reactions of US government officials to these and other criticisms of the US "detention, interrogation, and transfer of persons suspected of membership in al Qaeda or the Iraqi insurgency."
