"To announce that there must be no criticism of the president, or that we are to stand by the president, right or wrong, is not only unpatriotic and servile, but is morally treasonable to the American public." Theodore Roosevelt

OSCE Report: Detention Camps Fuel Hatred

The OSCE, a security organization that consist of the U.S. and 54 other nations, released a report today with the following statements:
"A generation of young Muslims, fed on the images of Abu Ghraib, of the treatment reserved for the Guantanamo detainees and rumors about profanation of the Koran, will have filled the al Qaeda ranks and those of other extremist groups."

"The longer the detention is in the camps the more the hatred against the U.S. and the West becomes anchored in hearts and minds."

"Being fully aware of the U.S. authorities' dilemma between national and world security and long procedures, we recommend terminating the Guantanamo detention facility by announcing a calendar of closure."
No new revelations here, but hopefully the OSCE has enough global clout to influence the Bush Administration into closing the detention camps.
