Under no circumstances forgive, never ever neglect. The media barely mentions the U.S. prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba or its detainees any more, some of whom have been held for 20 many years devoid of demo. But the facility remains open up at an exorbitant value ($13 million for each 12 months for each detainee as of 2019 — 40 detainees remained at that time) and pretrial hearings for numerous of these remaining detainees are ongoing.

Earlier this week, Carole Rosenberg of the New York Situations, who has devoted the final 20 years of her profession to covering Gitmo, claimed on a listening to at Gitmo at which James E. Mitchell, “the psychologist who aided produce the C.I.A.’s torture software”, testified as to the “approved and unapproved interrogation tactics (aka torture) he personally participated in and witnessed of Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, who will be experiencing a dying penalty trial sometime this century for the 2000 assault on the U.S.S. Cole around Yemen that killed 17 U.S. sailors.

Perhaps drinking water-boarding is considered far too ho-hum to report on these times, but Dr. Mitchell’s testimony with regards to forced anal feedings forcing naked detainees into a small crate box (impression in this article) like a dog working with a rigid bristle brush to scrape the detainees an*s and then put it in his facial area and mouth, and other disgusting treatments are not.

We really should all make it a point not to overlook the atrocities that have transpired in our identify at the behest of some of the most heinous politicians in U.S. background. Dick Cheney, are you listening?
