Torture tape delays U.S.-UAE nuclear deal, say U.S. officials
A videotape of a heinous torture session is delaying the ratification of a civil nuclear deal between the United Arab Emirates and the United States, senior U.S. officials familiar with the case said.
In the tape, an Afghan grain dealer is seen being tortured by a member of the royal family of Abu Dhabi, one of the UAE's seven emirates.
The senior U.S. officials said the administration has held off on the ratification process because it believes sensitivities over the story can hurt its passage.
This is a follow up to the original story that was originally on NowPublic.com under the Title :
"Torture Tape Implicates UAE Royal Sheikh" The thought police had it removed.
Apparently it was not removed before public outrage got in the way of politics as usual.
