11. Thanks for so clearly laying this out.
K&R from me too! :kick:

Although it has not been a popular stand and I do not justify any actions of the Taliban or of bin Laden (our own CIA-trained and funded operative, after all), I have always maintained that our launching a war against Afghanistan after 9-11 was not justified. But both Congress and our brain-washed media went along, with the media leading the charge.

Gitmo is a manifest stain on our international legal credibility (as you so rightly state, it's war crimes territory). The fact that it has been maintained for seven years without major national outcry on our part makes us all complicit, I'm afraid. The tens of thousands of "disappeared" individuals who are in even worse circumstances ... or dead ... is an even greater stain and an even worse complicity.
