US Torture Confirmed Again

Tuesday, April 26th, 2016

An article titled Why Bush, Cheney, and CIA Leaders Should Be Charged With War Crimes was published today.  It brings forward more information about the torture of Guantanamo  prisoners.  The authors say that prisoner Zayn al-Abidin Muhammad Husayn, better known by his Arabic nickname Abu Zubaydah, who is still held in solitary detention in Guantanamo, was accused of things that are not true.

Further the article states:

“And even if it had been true, what the CIA did to Abu Zubaydah — with the knowledge and approval of the highest government officials — is a prime example of the kind of still-unpunished crimes that officials like Dick Cheney, George Bush, and Donald Rumsfeld committed in the so-called Global War on Terror.”

Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld were the criminals in this case as in so many others.  We must not forget their egregious crimes against humanity and continue to call for their prosecution as war criminals in US and International Courts.
