Shameful Ordeal of Abu Zubaydah
Here is an article by Rebecca Gordon about a victim of injustice who is rotting in a solitary confinement in the Guantanamo Bay prison. She writes, "The capture, torture, and propaganda use of Abu Zubaydah is the perfect example of the U.S. government’s unique combination of willful law-breaking, ass-covering memo-writing, and what some Salvadorans I once worked with called “strategic incompetence. The fact that no one — not George Bush or Dick Cheney, not Jessen or Mitchell, nor multiple directors of the CIA — has been held accountable means that, unless we are very lucky, we will see more of the same in the future."
