20th Hijacker 'Tortured'
Says a judge
The top Bush administration official in charge of deciding whether to bring Guantanamo Bay detainees to trial has concluded that the U.S. military tortured a Saudi national who allegedly planned to participate in the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, interrogating him with techniques that included sustained isolation, sleep deprivation, nudity and prolonged exposure to cold, leaving him in a "life-threatening condition."
Jules Crittenden comes up with a good response; only use techniques
which have been approved by liberal bloggers:
Throwing heavy objects at people, for example. It would normally considered a criminal act, and certainly was not authorized treatment of U.S. detainees at any time during the last troubled eight years. But in the wake of the Muntader al-Shoedi Brogan-chucking incident, throwing things has been embraced by the Arab world and the American Left as a legitimate form of speech. Consequently, it would seem there is no reasonable barrier to talking to people in this manner as part of a responsible, humane effort to encourage them to see the errors of their ways.
In other news, all those "completely innocent" people
who were swept up to Gitmo and eventually released?
Terror suspects who have been held but released from Guantanamo Bay are increasingly returning to the fight against the United States and its allies, the Pentagon said today.
Sixty-one detainees who have been released from the U.S. Navy base prison in Cuba are believed to have rejoined the fight, Pentagon spokesman Geoff Morrell said. That is up from 37 previously, Morrell said.
Of course, the bleeding hearts will claim that their adoption of terrorism stems from their treatment at Guantanamo.
