(Note, Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson has spoken out courageously against the torture of Ibn Sheik Al Libi, the man the US tortured until he fabricated the story that the Iraqi government trained Al-Qaeda operatives in chemical and biological warfare.

    i am not sure what good mounting evidence would do when we have a current administration who lacks the testicular fortitude to do anything about it. if Bush, Cheney, and Rice were leaders of virtually any other country in the world, they would have been arrested and tried as war criminals. instead, we have a current president who views Guantanamo as a mistake but is not willing to move forward with any sort of investigation or prosecution.
