JAG Knows Better on Guantanamo

In Human rights on August 3, 2005 at 10:19 pm

There’s a great post by Adam on the memos sent in 2003 by the Judge Advocate Generals of the Armed Forces condemning “extraordinary” methods of interrogation and confinement.

As Son of Regular Navy, it doesn’t suprise me that the military men and women were the ones to blow the whistle on this bullshit. It takes a Uniform Queen with a military fetish to play make-believe like this administration has. Military men and women by-and-large (and Abu Ghraib notwithstanding) know better. They know what they’re fighting for.

  1. Join Amnesty’s virtual trip to Guantanamo asking for it to be closed. Amnesty International has launched an animated online petition asking for people to join our flotilla travelling all the way to Guantánamo.

    It’s not just about designing your outfit, doing your hair or choosing your mode of transport, but also about making a difference by creating an active social community.
    Guantánamo Bay is a symbol of injustice and abuse. It must be closed down.

    Join activists worldwide today in showing solidarity with the detainees and their families, demanding once more, and louder than ever, that the US government close Guantánamo!

    Help us pass the message! Please forward the link to as many people as you can (http://www.amnesty.org/guantanamoflotilla/) and ask them to sign up to the campaign and forward it to their friends and colleagues. People can also link to the flotilla from their website or blog. Find banners and buttons in English, Spanish, French, German & Arabic here: http://web.amnesty.org/pages/stoptorture-bannersflotilla-eng.

    This extraordinary journey, a unique opportunity to express your opposition to Guantánamo, will help to pressure the US government to close the camp once and for all.
