FUCK USA TORTURE PROGRAMS
The USA use (sic)approved torture techniques, secret prisons, life sentences with no trials, and much more horrible goodies they use on other Humans while they wear the flag of the USA on the sleeve. Read more of these TRUE stories from HELL (GITMO) that Andy Worthington is reporting on in his new book "Introducing The Definitive List Of The Remaining Prisoners In Guantanamo"
This (USA) "Government approved torture crap" is blowing my mind
I just gave the corporate media hell today on my lunch hour (in Pioneer Square) for "not covering the torture protest" across the street while instead they did some weather report LIVE from Pioneer square
The fucken idiots
I was debating with them (Camera guy and Reporter in a suit n tie) as they got OH SO SERIOUS ...about their LIVE -->"ITS FUCKING RAINING TODAY" report for their Ch 6 spin.
Then another employees walks me off aways to "talk with me about my concerns"
As two Pioneer Square security guards all slink in to monitor, their precious spin doctors, getting *slightly (ohhhh noooo) challenged.
Then 5 hours latter, I read the following article (see below) and my blood boils even more;
I watch for weeks after weeks a few dedicated outspoken protesters show up at noon on Thursdays in Portland at the 9th Circuit Courthouse
A small handful.... but better than NONE!!!
I know I know ..everyones busy
Beside why protest the USA torture judges & US torture programs when you can sit at home and watch LIVE weather reports
The united states is one sick puppy
The citizens are zombies
The cops and military are out of control (killing thousands around the globe)
The cops INTIMIDATE and hassle any person or group who dares to even look like they are rising up against corruption and greed
The Congress COULD CARE LESS ABOUT WHAT CITIZENS WANT.... they work for the corporations and the military complex
The president lied and bullshitted his way in to the seat that the previous president stole his way into
We have lost our minds, and our morals, society and our collective power is slipping into torture programmers hands
That all said and aside, Please read this account by the author Andy Worthington
If when reading, and find you are outraged, ....I ask "What are you doing to stop it"
If you have answers to that, thats good, if you do anything at all ....Thats really really Good....
If you do nothing ...you are complicit and are part of the problem.
We all need to become one voice for not condoning Torture
We all need to be in solidarity
We all need to become active in some way on this, especially collectively and in unison for the common cause
We all need to bring this conversation to the tables of every household
We all need to DEMAND that Justice and Honesty is the road we as country walk down
We all need to do this now....or we will loose the higher ground that we [all assume] we walk on
We all need to be sick of this type of treatment and vocal that it is unacceptable
I have been documenting as much as I can on this topic, I am totally backlogged
I cant even begin to keep up
This torture business is like working a deal with a snake oil salesman
And it looks like the snake-oil man just sold us some bad phony shit..... and it has fucked us up good!
The average citizen doesn't even know if GITMO is open or closed, or what the word "rendition" means
Let alone even know a fraction of what you will know if you read any of Andy's writings
I urge everyone to check out what Andy is reporting on right here:

Over the next month, in an attempt to f
ocus attention more closely on Guantánamo, and on the remaining prisoners who are held there, I'll be publishing an eight-part series of articles (in conjunction with Cageprisoners, for whom I work as a Senior Researcher), telling, for the first time, the stories of the 176 men who are still held.
The series begins with the stories of 20 men described by the US authorities as part of the "Dirty Thirty," seized crossing from Afghanistan to Pakistan in December 2001, who are mostly regarded as having been bodyguards for Osama bin Laden, even though there is copious evidence that these allegations were produced by a number of prisoners who were tortured — including Mohammed al-Qahtani, for whom Guantánamo's version of the CIA's torture program was devised in the fall of 2002, and approved by then-defense secretary Donald Rumsfeld......
Many of the 176 men who were still in Guantánamo at the time of writing were rounded up for the substantial bounty payments (averaging $5000 a head) that were paid by the US military for "al-Qaeda and Taliban suspects," and, given that 596 men have already been released, it should be profoundly troubling that the majority of the men still held were either foot soldiers in an inter-Muslim civil war that had nothing to do with al-Qaeda or the 9/11 attacks, or civilians still struggling to establish their innocence.
Readers will also encounter many stories of brutality and torture in these accounts, but, I believe, few stories of genuine terrorists, and should bear in mind that, as advised by President Obama's interagency Guantánamo Review Task Force, only 34 of the remaining 176 men are to be put forward for trials, although 48 others are to be held indefinitely without charge or trial (because they are regarded as too dangerous to release, even though there is insufficient evidence to put them on trial), and 92 others are to be released......
