"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

More Abuse, More Denial

Amnesty International reports that two men were held in solitary confinement, in secret underground detention facilities, without charge, in an unknown country and interrogated by masked men for more than 18 months...

"We fear that what we have heard from these two men is just one small part of the much broader picture of U.S. secret detentions around the world," said Sharon Critoph, a researcher at Amnesty International who interviewed the men in Yemen.

"These men were stripped of their dignity, at times beaten, spat on, deprived of sleep and threatened with sexual abuse and electric shocks," William F. Schulz, executive director of Amnesty International USA , said in a statement. "Their testimony will hopefully shed light on U.S. detention centers just as sinister, yet less well-known, than Guantanamo."

The Bush Administration recently renamed the War on Terror, to the broader more encompassing Global Struggle Against Violent Extremism... A bit hypercritical, don't you think?
