Bush's Detainee Plan Assailed
The operative word being "civilized."
How civilized are we, when this administration has lobbied Congress for permission to continue torturing people, making troture a policy of this government, as Dick Cheney did?
How civilized are we, when we are holding children at Gitmo?
All of this, and this administration is still in power with no possibility of impeachment in sight.
How civilized are we?
Bush's Detainee Plan Assailed:
'I am not aware of any situation in the world where there is a system of jurisprudence that is recognized by civilized people where an individual can be tried and convicted without seeing the evidence against him,' said Brigadier Gen. James C. Walker, staff judge advocate to the Marine Corps commandant.
