Detained chaplain may have been whistle-blower
Found some informed speculation that the chaplain detained for espionage at the American concentration camp may have actually been attempting to blow the whistle on the treatment of the prisoners. If true, chances are this guy will be disappeared or given a secret trial and never be heard from again.

long link

Fascism. It has happend here.

1. And I believed I was alone in thinking this....
Check out my post from Sunday morning re:
http://www.democraticunderground.com/discuss/duboard.ph...

Could Iman Cpt. Peter Yee be another Daniel Ellsworth???

What I find strange about the Muslim Chaplain case is that he was detained on Sept. 10 and we just hear about it now. He's still not charged with anything, except by the press...

But then again I make some pretty cool tinfoil hats...

Most of the new reports about the West Point graduate are about his link to Syria, as in he studied his religion there. Then re-enlisted in the army.

He is also allegedly to have had in his possession diagrams of Gitmo, lists of detainees, transcripts of interrogations, and reports on interrogators.

But wait, we are told he was detained by the order of "the highest level of government officials."

I am starting to think he was going to release stuff to the press. I don't really know, just call it a journalistic instinct...

2. I agree
There's more to this story than just the headline...

3. I'm watching CNN right now
and it appears as though they've already tried and convicted him of treason. They're buying the government's story, seemingly without question. Are they stupid, or just lazy?

4. kicking this speculation...
Because I think it is something worth questioning Especially when the "War On Reality Press" (WORP, for short, e.g., CNN, et al) present the government's position as unquestionable truth (e.g., "Reality").

Who ever controls your perception of reality controls you.
