Death of a Prisoner: Tragedy In Guantánamo Bay! DAMN, GITMO STILL OPENED?***messymandella***


 

Torture and abuse cost Americans live .I learned in Iraq that the No. 1 reason foreign fighters flocked there to fight were the abuses carried out at Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo. Our policy of torture was directly and swiftly recruiting fighters for al-Qaeda in Iraq…How anyone can say that torture keeps Americans safe is beyond me — unless you don’t count American soldiers as Americans.”Matthew Alexander, leader of an interrogations team assigned to a Special Operations task force in Iraq in 2006.- From The Washington Post

“The difference between us and the enemy is how we treat the enemy.”-Rear. Adm. John Hutson, former Navy lawyerUPI.com

“It gives us a very, very bad name, not just internationally. I have a great deal of difficulty understanding how we can hold someone, pick someone up, particularly someone who might be an American citizen–even if they were caught somewhere abroad–acting against American interests, and hold them without ever giving them an opportunity to appear before a magistrate.”--James A. Baker III, former U.S. Secretary of StateLA Times
