Another critic to be silenced?

Last month, the US had the UN Independent Expert on Human Rights for Afghanistan sacked after he criticised the behaviour of US forces. Now the UN special representative in Afghanistan, Jean Arnault, has joined the row over the torture and murder of Afghan prisoners by US forces at Bagram airbase, and called for US facilities in Afghanistan to be opened to international inspections.

I guess they'll have to sack him too...
