Jaw dropping statement of the day: Torture in Iraq worse than under Saddam

This is from Al-AP via the Jerusalem Post.
Torture in Iraq is perhaps worse now than it was under the regime of Saddam Hussein, the United Nations' chief anti-torture expert said Thursday, describing a situation where militias, terrorist groups, government forces and others disregard rules on the humane treatment of prisoners.

"What most people tell you is that the situation as far as torture is concerned now in Iraq is totally out of hand," said Manfred Nowak, the global body's special investigator on torture. "The situation is so bad many people say it is worse than it has been in the times of Saddam Hussein."
At least he didn't say 'Abu Ghraib.'
