Torture Enters the Courtroom

For the first time in American history, a federal judge last week authorized the government to admit as evidence in a criminal case in a public courtroom words uttered by the defendant that were obtained under torture.

Al-Nashiri’s lawyers told the court and the prosecutors at Guantanamo Bay that they intend to argue at trial to the jury that the government has the wrong man and that the true plotters have already been killed by US forces. The feds, in order to counter that argument, told the court that they have statements that al-Nashiri made during his torture that can arguably be used to question his defense.

If the trial judge in the court in Guantanamo Bay had followed the law – the Constitution, the statutes and the rules of procedure, all of which profoundly reject the fruits of cruel and unusual punishment and shocking behavior – as well as American history, he would have excluded from the trial whatever al-Nashiri told his torturers while they had a broomstick well into his rectum.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

Dosne't this make you PROUD TO BE AN AMERICAN?!?!?

And folks, these procedures were paid for by your tax dollars; doesn't that make you feel great?!?

DAMN, I wish we lived in a country which doesn't so routinely commit war crimes; unfortunately, Mike and I are too old and to broke to immigrate.
