We're all Middle Easterners Now

From the State Department's press release:
The State Departmentís Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights and Labor issued the annual reports for 196 countries February 28.

The reports identified serious problems in several Middle East countries, including: arbitrary arrests, torture of detainees, incommunicado detention, trials without due process, lack of access to legal counsel, poor prison conditions, long pretrial detentions, and the death of prisoners in police custody.
No need to go to the Middle East for that--we've got all that and more right here in the USA.
