U.S. accused of breaking U.N. rules

The UN is crying foul, claiming the U.S. violated international rules by refusing to let a torture investigator speak alone to Army Private Bradley Manning. He’s the soldier accused of leaking classified information to Wikileaks. Reuters is reporting that Juan Mendez, U.N. special envoy on torture, said that “unmonitored one-on-one meetings with detainees in custody worldwide were the only way he could conduct credible enquiries into allegations of mistreatment.”
