It's a bit amazing that it took this long to admit it but Iran's police chief is now acknowledging for the first time that prisoners arrested following that nation's presidential election were abused while in custody.
But he continues to insist that those who died while incarcerated succumbed to illnesses, not abuse. Hard to believe given the condition of their released bodies.
One would think, with all the evidence and outcry among the Iranian people that nations of the world, including the United States, wouldn't be so timid in their condemnation of the obvious horrific human rights abuses going on in Iran. But they are, which is why it's so important for the citizens of the world to join those in Iran in protest over what's going on there.
