Due process?

On Guantanamo:

Bush said 200 detainees had been sent home, and that most of the remaining 460 are from Saudi Arabia, Yemen and Afghanistan.

"There are some who need to be tried in US courts," he said. "They're cold-blooded killers. They will murder somebody if they are let out on the street."


450 people are still being held without even being charged with anything (only 10 have been charged) some for four years so far. Yet Bush can declare to the world that they are cold-blooded killers who will commit murder if they are released.

Due process means nothing, US and international law means nothing, innocent until proven guilty means nothing.

This is what people are dying to defend, and to impose on others?

Hey... You should be adding your blog to the Bloggers Against Torture thingy.

This is just the sort of thing that needs to be stopped.
