In the interest of brevity I will only post this link.
I can't say that I'm very familiar with the conditions in Guantanamo, but two things in this article strike me as pathetic.
First- The assertion that the prisoners are being treated humanely " recieving far better treatment than in the life they were living previously".
Does it strike anyone else as stupidly arrogant to think that being a prisoner of the US government is better than not?
Second- The official US responses seem suspiciously tepid, even offhand, as if they couldn't be bothered to put up even a half-hearted defense. At a time when much of the world is focused on our motives and future moves, would it really be so much to ask that we make the attempt to explain/justify/defend our actions?
Granted, I wouldn't expect Bush to be able to muster a coherent response, but surely somebody in our leader's cabal could whip up a spirited response?
