RE: Turns out Newsweek was right after all
Come on. azimuth, doesn't theat whole "the prisoner did it" just stink of cover-up? You mean to tell me, some guy in a prison full of Muslim fanatics is going to stuff his own Koran down the toilet? Wouldn't he just be better off putting a sign on himself, asking his fellow muslims to please torture him to death? You know what I think - I think some guard did it, then put it in his report that the prisoner had done it, and that it was being investigated when Newsweek got wind of it. Once everyone saw that the story was going to cause world-wide riots, they all put a lid on it.
As usual, all this stupity has obscured the real issue - what are these people, criminals or Prisoners of War? Why all the secrecy? Everything Botnst claims is coming from the US government - its their official story, and the place is so secret, who the hell knows if they are telling the truth? They have a long history of lying and inserting propganda, even paying reporters under the table to write articles or ask softball questions that are favorable to whatever story they are trying to push. They have even admitted planting false stories in the media. We need some accountability. We need to make these into either Federal Prisons or POW camps, and follow the rules for those type of institutions, and cut out all this Soviet-style Gulag crap - all it is doing is making us look bad.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
