    Maybe the member countries of the United Nations Human Rights Council could do something to help? Oh wait, Saudi Arabia is already a member, so they’re probably already doing the best they can.

  • They should just refer to them as harsh prison discipline techniques and all will fine. Then they officially will be like the USA and not engage in torture.
