Almost no American media outlet has covered the story of British Citizens being wrongly imprisoned and tortured in Guantanamo, forced to sign confessions they did not make for crimes they did not commit. Finally, at the urginf of the British Government, these innocent men were released. But...As a condition of their release, they had to forfit their passports so that they could not travel to the United States and testify before Congress about this amazing atrocity of the Bush administration.
The ability of Democrats to issue subpoenas is one of the single most inprortant reasons The United States Congress must be taken by Democrats. Otherwise, the United States will continue to spiral into fascism at the hands of the insanity that is the Neo Conservative leadership of the Republican Party.
Here is an excerpt from Moazzam Begg, a second-generation British Muslim:
"How could American laws apply, in retrospect, to a British citizen, who had never travelled west of Dublin, for crimes that never existed in the first place? "
I used to think George Bush was a nut case...That may be, but it is Cheney that is the criminally insane person in all this. I give you his assessment of the situation in Iraq as the smoking gun:
If you look at the general overall situation, they’re doing remarkably well.
...Vice President Dick Cheney
The "general" overall view actually seems to disagree. Particularly when you actually ask the "Generals".
A slightly diferent view is held by dozens of Military Generals who had their careers ended as the cost of standing up for their Country while it was in the hands of the insane:
"The Iraq War the worst strategic mistake in the history of the United States."
...Lt. Gen. William Odom, Retired as a result of his opinion.
"The dissenting retired generals are bent on making Iraq this nation's last strategically failed war -- that is, one doggedly waged by civilian officials largely to avoid personal accountability for their bad decisions. A failed war causes mounting human and other costs, damaging or entirely destroying the national interest it was supposed to serve."
