39 “Disappeared” In U.S. War On Terror

Posted by nytexan on June 7, 2007

You really have to scratch your head and wonder how Bush, his administration and branches of this government can continue to lie to the world about secret prisons; how can they live with themselves. World organizations who research, track, document abuse, disappearances and deaths of the world’s citizens continue to beat their heads against the wall as they are continually stonewalled by Bush. Are families imagining that they are missing someone? Are these families misleading the human rights agencies? Is everyone in the world lying and making up tragic events in their lives? I think not.

Bush would like you to think so, because he is the only one that is correct on everything. Or so he and his cronies would like you to believe. Bush and the departments that go along with him are responsible for the imaginary “non-events”. They are the true tragedy to the world’s families.

NEW YORK (Reuters) – Six human rights groups urged the U.S. government on Thursday to name and explain the whereabouts of 39 people they said were believed to have been held in U.S. custody and “disappeared.”

The groups, including Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch, said they filed a U.S. federal lawsuit under the Freedom of Information Act seeking information about the 39 people it terms “ghost prisoners” in the U.S. “war on terror.”

“Since the end of Latin America’s dirty wars, the world has rejected the use of ‘disappearances’ as a fundamental violation of international law,” professor Meg Satterthwaite of the Center for Human Rights and Global Justice at New York University’s School of Law said in a statement.

Don’t forget Bush is above world opinion and law.

The report said suspects’ relatives, including children as young as seven, had been held in secret detention on occasion.

CIA spokesman Paul Gimigliano dismissed the report, saying the CIA acts in “strict accord with American law” and its counter-terrorist initiatives are “subject to careful review and oversight.”

“The United States does not conduct or condone torture,” he said.

Of course we conduct torture. What does Paul Gimigliano think water boarding is, surfing?  Putting a seven year old or any child in an adult facility such as Gitmo is torture. People disappearing to never been seen of or heard from again is torture for their families. The BS that this administration continues to give about their compassion, their love for democracy and the protection of freedom is just that; bull shit.  

The arrogance and behavior of Bush is the same delusional, paranoid behavior of Pinochet, the Nazi, and Joseph Stalin. In the past organizations throughout the world have put a stop to the behavior of regimes and dictators, and Bush should not be an exception. 

War on Terror: 

Hitler used the 1933 burning of the Reichstag (Parliament) building by a deranged Dutchman to declare a “war on terrorism,” establish his legitimacy as a leader (even though he hadn’t won a majority in the previous election)

Continuing the family business. Good boy George:

Ultimately, Bush’s real peers are not US presidents but Third World dictators, like Pinochet, many of whom his father also put in office.

Stalin’s GULAG:

 Implementing Soviet internal politics with respect to perceived enemies of the state (“enemies of the people“), the agency conducted arrests and executions of Soviet and foreign citizens. Millions were rounded up and sent to GULAG camps and hundreds of thousands were executed by the NKVD. Formally, most of these people were convicted by NKVD troikas (“triplets”) – special courts martial.

Bush must be taken to the world court and prosecuted for war crime. The idea that his actions are done in the name of protecting us from terror is exactly what Hitler said. The horrors of Stalin’s GULAG’s are being played out at GITMO and at secret prisons. Pinochet’s crimes against humanity are an everyday event in Iraq.

History is again repeating itself. We have a choice to make; are we going to continue to sit by and allow Bush to continue these atrocities or are we going to stand up with the world organizations and hold Bush accountable. I hope it’s the latter.

    Hiya NYT. Also don’t forget the Bush family connection to Nazism, going back to Prescott Bush, who continued to trade with Hitler even after Hitler declared war on the US.

    I thought about Prescott, but I think he deserves his own post. This family is so corrupt. Their love of the Nazi’s will continue as long as a dollar can be made.

    Unfortunately, we are stuck with Bush until the end of his term. And without representation in Congress, our only option is to fight his every move right here, in our blogs, with truth.

    I agree but I think we also need to get involved with the different world organizations that are trying to stop him.

  5. We aren’t accustomed to thinking the USA maintains gulags, a la, the Soviet Union. Thank you, George Bush and Dick Cheney. You’ve managed to destroy everything that is decent and just about this nation.

    How can we ever recover from all the damage Bush & Co. have done to our country.
