Thanks for this info!! Every patriotic U.S. citizen concerned about the current Bush administration's arrogant, above-the-law stance on fighting terrorism should read this article.

Alas, the very fact that no one (until now) has even bothered to respond to your response is telling. What is it going to take for the American public to awaken to the reality that GWB ans his elk are destroying the fabric of this country? I had my class read Robert Kennedy, Jr.'s book on how W and his corporate pals are plundering America and now we learn that the APA has joined itself to Bush's hip. This is enough to make a grown person cry...except for the fact that so few people even know this is happening! It's time for a modern day Paul Revere to ride alerting the people that the enemy is near (Pogo had it right...it may just, in fact, be us!).

Indeed, open mind!!!! Of all the articles on the secret torture prisons, not to mention Gitmo, this info is the most desturbing I have run across. No one seems to care or take note of the depth and extent of this move by the current administration to ravage the foundation of our system of government. German history (WWII) should be enough of a lesson. Where in heaven's name are the true patriots, congress, and the electorate of this nation??? Maybe the lack of response is due to shock or disbelief. My guess is most just do not care.

Once more, is there no one out there reading this article? Surely there must be a way to get this story out to the public. Maybe we should send it to truthout.org or some other group that has a wider reading. Perhaps then we could get something going on a public conversation about this tragedy!

You promise CHANGE!!! Well if you really mean it, and you do have good intentions, I challenge you to prove it. Demand from the Cuban government that all the political dissidents be set free effective immediately, particularly our afroCuban brother, Oscar Elias Biscet. Dr. Biscet is imprisoned for championing the cause for human rights. He never did anything wrong or illegal but his defense of human rights is considered by the dictatorship counterrevolutionary. There are many of us who doubt you, prove us wrong with a good deed, but make this a dermand that must be met, not just a simple request.
Request that the Ladies in White be protected and not be abused as they are during their march.
Democratic elections and freedom of speech and the press!
