WTF is wrong here

I came across this story today which really made me feel the need to rant for a bit.

Apparently the people in charge at Guantanamo are aware that things are screwy enough that they printed in their procedure’s manual : “The mission has legal and political issues that may lead to interrogators being called to testify … Keeping the number of documents with interrogation information to a minimum can minimise certain legal issues,”

I’ll admit I’m not that surprised if the interrogators down there would destroy evidence, but that it would actually be printed in the standard operating procedures is more brazen than I would have thought possible.

The only thing that is more depressing is that this doesn’t seem to be all over the news yet.

One Response to “WTF is wrong here”


Sadly, this is old news. I heard about it quite a few months ago. Out of sight, out of mind, I guess.

Hopefully, the tide will turn (maybe Barack can help!) and we’ll return the USA to NOT being one of the few countries that condones torture. And make no mistake, we condone it– the public has no illusions about what’s going on. We just don’t care, as long as it’s (mostly) “foreigners”.
