    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.
