Well done to everyone involved in this. If we can keep up the pretence that the people held at Guantanemo are harmless victims of US and UK imperialist policies the sooner we can achieve our aims.

Our particualr thanks to those of the Leftist Intelligensia who are prepared to see their own well won liberal policies being destroyed by Islamic fundamentalism just because extremist Islam opposes the USA.

A terrorist

Thanks to you also

Yes thanks for a deliberate misinterpretation of the original post. Go and check out the reality of what is happening - a couple of weeks ago UK was condemned for its human rights record by a prominent group - both for keeping foreign nationals locked up with no indication of any accusations and the ruling last year that torture is admissable as evidence (as long as UK and US doesn't get it hands dirty itselves of course)

Its not that people are supporting the rights of terrorists to bomb people it's more questioning if any of the methods used at the moment are likely to prevent further attacks. Wheres ya evidence that confessions obtained by torture are reliable? What better method of recruiting for extremist islamic groups than hypocritical hell holes like Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib ?
