? The U.S. mission in Afghanistan has suspended the transfer of detainees to several Afghan jails, following torture allegations.

? The CIA's drone operation has killed more than 2,000 militants and civilians since 2001.

? Provocative headline: Why Native Americans fight and die for the same U.S. army that slew their ancestors.
