NAIROBI (Reuters) – A U.N. court sentenced a former army colonel accused of masterminding the slaughter of 800,000 people in Rwanda in 1994 to life in prison on Thursday.

The Tanzania-based International Criminal Tribunal for Rwanda (ICTR) had accused Theoneste Bagosora, 67, of being in charge of the troops and Interahamwe Hutu militia who butchered 800,000 minority Tutsis and moderate Hutus in 100 days.

L.A. Gang Program: Where once again SECRECY rules - GO

WHY FOR THE SAKE OF RIGHTS, we have to watch and dig underneath even the best available news sources (for example, the PBS scheduled programs on Torture, USA, some of which have aired after exposure, perhaps?) What else is not being aired/reported? Another example, perhaps, is that BBC, awarded recently, seems to be quite slack reporting the many breaking stories on GTMO & Torture these days??? Also - with the exception of Nina - could be doing a whole lot better as well. Not to mention so many others less able and quick at reporting than these... What gives? For one such analysis and exposure of the "under-workings" of this supposed democracy, free speech and all...look at how the administration and $ still has recently been somewhat intimidating, in part, to some who would be true reporters...
