Still can't Gitmo satisfaction: "Detainees" at the Gulag Guantanamo still have no rights, no charges, no hearings, no lawyers, no hope. (from the WSWS)

A group of US army officers in Afghanistan last year called for scores of detainees not to be sent to Guantanamo Bay. Senior US military commanders in Afghanistan, Kuwait and America, however, ignored their advice. The article also reported that Maj. Gen. Michael E. Dunleavy, operational commander at Guantanamo Bay until October, visited Afghanistan last year complaining that there were “too many ‘Mickey Mouse’ detainees” being sent to the naval base.

This is the type of crap this country is supposed to oppose, not do!
