The U.S. has for the first time ever faced unprecedented public scrutiny over its human rights record at the United Nations Human Rights Council. The U.S.delegation received strong criticism over human rights violations, including racial profiling, use of the death penalty and abuse allegations overseas. Council members in Geneva called for the closure of Guantanamo Bay prison and further investigation into alleged torture by US troops abroad. American representatives defended their nation's human rights record, but stressed they were not satisfied with the status quo.
