In no way forgive, in no way ignore. The media scarcely mentions the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba or its detainees any more, some of whom have been held for 20 yrs with no demo. But the facility continues to be open up at an exorbitant cost ($13 million per 12 months for every detainee as of 2019 — 40 detainees remained at that time) and pretrial hearings for numerous of these remaining detainees are ongoing.
Before this 7 days, Carole Rosenberg of the New York Situations, who has committed the final 20 a long time of her profession to masking Gitmo, claimed on a hearing at Gitmo at which James E. Mitchell, “the psychologist who assisted create the C.I.A.’s torture program”, testified as to the “authorised and unapproved interrogation procedures (aka torture) he personally participated in and witnessed of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, who will be facing a death penalty demo sometime this century for the 2000 attack on the U.S.S. Cole in the vicinity of Yemen that killed 17 U.S. sailors.
Maybe drinking water-boarding is thought of way too ho-hum to report on these times, but Dr. Mitchell’s testimony with regards to compelled anal feedings forcing naked detainees into a little crate box (impression listed here) like a pet making use of a stiff bristle brush to scrape the detainees an*s and then put it in his confront and mouth, and other disgusting treatment options are not.
We ought to all make it a stage not to forget about the atrocities that have occurred in our identify at the behest of some of the most heinous politicians in U.S. background. Dick Cheney, are you listening?
