Torture in Beirut jail: not of interest to Western correspondents and Western human rights organizations

Western correspondents in Beirut and Western human rights organizations are not bothered much about this scandal and I have not seen any coverage about it in the US press. It is possible because the torture was by the same Intelligence Branch that is trained, equipped, financed and sponsored by the Saudi regime, US and France. If this was by another branch of the Lebanese government (i.e. by agencies that are loyal to March 8 and not March 14 as is the case here), there would have been international condemnations and the UNSC would have met.
