This might be a better look for me?
Anyway, the last annual State Department report on human rights abuses was a hoot as the WaPo pointed out, for Rumsfeld himself had sanctioned similar actions be used in the U.S. as what was being condemned in other countries!
North Korea was charged with the disappearance and indefinite detention of prisoners without trial , Syria with torture including waterboarding. I guess Mr. Arar was one of those Syrian statistics courtesy of the U.S. and Canada? These bastards take Arar over to be tortured then condemn Syria in their annual report!
So what will next years report tell us about 2006? Over 14,000 and counting detained without charges to be considered?
62 million dollars paid to Musharaf and tribal leaders in Afghanistan and Pakistan to round up Al Qaeda like suspects for Guantanamo? 369 turned over by Pakistan. Who keeps that money I wonder? Stupid question.
I guess this explains why in Defense Department reports about Guantanamo only 8% of detainees were believed to be Al Qaeda. Only 5% of the detainees were actually captured by the U.S. Over 86% were purchased like cattle thru bounties paid for by the CIA. Captured by reward seeking Pakistani and Afghani warlords and villagers of highly doubtful reliability. All suspects by association at worst.
Then there's the issue of state sponsored torture in the U.S.? Maybe they'll have to stop these annual State Department reports until the U.S. starts acting like the U.S. again?
