America's Shame

Guantanamo bay has now been up and running for 4 years as a place where the US government puts terror suspects and violates basic human rights guaranteed under the Geneva convention. Nothing more undermines the 'war on terror' than this place. The whole idea that the west is so much more civilised than its' enemies does not quite sit right when the west's enemies are being treated like this. I urge you all to support Amnesty International in seeking for the closure of this facility. Of course there will still be the whole problem of Bush's definition of torture and the secret prisons in those countries not so big on 'liberty' or 'freedom'

San Nakji for President!

San, this indeterminate detention bothers me greatly, it's been nearly 5yrs and these people haven't been charged with a crime even! Outrageous!
