We condemn utterly all acts of abuse.

We maintain a regular dialogue with the US Government on a great many foreign policy issues, including at the highest levels, about allegations of abuse by US forces.

The US authorities have conducted a number of inquiries into these allegations, and where there has been evidence of abuse, individuals have been punished.
