Daphne Eviatar on Bagram Detention Facility in Afghanistan, CBS

Daphne Eviatar, senior counsel to Human Rights First's Law and Security Program, spoke to CBS news about the decision of the United States to give the government of Afghanistan control of the more than 3000 prisoners at Bagram Air Base.

Eviatar emphasized that “Afghan security services have a history of using torture to elicit confessions, and that was found just within the past year by the United Nations, so it’s not clear from this agreement how the United States will make sure that’s not happening.”
