Never ever forgive, hardly ever overlook. 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 without having trial. But the facility stays open at an exorbitant value ($13 million for each year per detainee as of 2019 — 40 detainees remained at that time) and pretrial hearings for many of these remaining detainees are ongoing.
Previously this 7 days, Carole Rosenberg of the New York Situations, who has committed the past 20 several years of her vocation to masking Gitmo, noted on a listening to at Gitmo at which James E. Mitchell, “the psychologist who served acquire the C.I.A.’s torture plan”, testified as to the “accepted and unapproved interrogation methods (aka torture) he personally participated in and witnessed of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, who will be facing a dying penalty demo sometime this century for the 2000 attack on the U.S.S. Cole near Yemen that killed 17 U.S. sailors.
Perhaps water-boarding is regarded as well ho-hum to report on these times, but Dr. Mitchell’s testimony with regards to pressured anal feedings forcing bare detainees into a compact crate box (graphic right here) like a canine utilizing a stiff bristle brush to scrape the detainees an*s and then put it in his deal with and mouth, and other disgusting solutions are not.
We must all make it a level not to overlook the atrocities that have transpired in our name at the behest of some of the most heinous politicians in U.S. history. Dick Cheney, are you listening?
