And for those telling me, "it's football, so leave politics out of it"... 1) Photo ops like this make that impossible; and 2) Torture & state murder are not "political"; they are criminal, pure & simple.

And obviously I'm not blaming here. I'm blaming for allowing a training camp to be put in the human rights black hole that is Chechnya. As expected, torturers & murderers are being praised on the world stage thanks to that decision.

So, congratulations, - you've helped empower a torturing, murdering strongman. We *literally* told you this would happen if you didn't change course. From February...
