1. US State Department's own report on CAR torture/human rights abuse
The State Department`s own report from March 2003 describes CAR as a country where "Police continued to torture, beat, and otherwise abuse suspects and prisoners."

(SoCalDem, glad you started this topic; I was just thinking it needed its own thread!)

3. Or for future rewards ..CAR was dropped from favored tariffs
Just a few months ago-- in Weekly Trade Roundup:
CAR: US drops CAR from trade pact

The US has dropped the Central African Republic (CAR) from its list of countries eligible for tariff preferences under the African Growth and Opportunity Act, the White House said on Tuesday. A proclamation issued by President George W. Bush deleted the CAR, along with Eritrea, from the list of eligible nations, because the CAR was "not making continual progress in meeting the requirements" for trade preferences.

AGOA was signed into law on 18 May 2000 and was designed by the US to
offer incentives to African nations to open up their economies. The law liberalised access to the US market by expanding duty-free benefits to products including apparel, footwear and certain agricultural goods.

According to the Trade Law Centre for Southern Africa, CAR exports to the US up to 2002 consisted mostly of minerals and metals, but the country ranked among the bottom few sub-Saharan exporters. http://www.irinnews.org/print.asp?ReportID=38682 ]
