t r u t h o u t - Amnesty Releases New Gitmo Torture Testimony

It is about time we started treating the Bush regime as if it were the Nazis and acting to defeat them before the world becomes a prison camp.
If there is evil on earth then this US regime is that.

t r u t h o u t - Amnesty Releases New Gitmo Torture Testimony: " 'Anniversaries usually represent milestones. Today's milestone is a frightening and disheartening one. The situation at Guantánamo is not getting better - in fact, it may be worse. First, the Bush Administration wants all 186 pending habeas corpus petitions filed on behalf of the detainees to be dismissed based on a new law that was not meant to apply to cases filed before the law went into effect. And now, after Congress overwhelming passed the historic Anti-Torture Amendment, President Bush is asserting that he can waive the restrictions on the use of cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment against detainees. When does the hypocrisy of defending democracy around the world while continuing to curtail fundamental due process end?' said Dr. William F. Schulz, Executive Director of Amnesty International USA."
