Long fight predicted in Guantanamo Sept. 11 case
The U.S. has finally started the prosecution of five Guantanamo Bay prisoners charged in the Sept. 11 attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people, but the trial won't be starting anytime soon, and both sides said Sunday that the case could continue for years.
9/11 'mastermind' causes major disruption at Guantanamo hearing
The self-proclaimed mastermind of the Sept. 11 attacks repeatedly declined to respond to a judge's questions Saturday and his co-defendant was briefly restrained at a military hearing as five men charged with the worst terror attack in U.S. history appeared in public for the first time in more than three years.

10 anni di Guantanamo
L'11 gennaio 2012 ricorre un anniversario decisamente scomodo: i dieci anni del campo di detenzione di Guantanamo. Creato dall'Amministrazione Bush per i prigionieri della guerra in Afghanistan (e poi in Iraq), in un decennio Guantanamo ha ospitato 779 persone "sospette" di avere contatti con gruppi terroristici. Molti di questi individui sono stati imprigionati, interrogati- e detenuti per anni in totale isolamento. Il tutto senza nemmeno la possibilità -;di vedere un avvocato. A tutt'oggi, i prigionieri sono 171. Ognuno di loro costa al contribuente 800.000 dollari l'anno, una cifra 30 volte maggiore di quella spesa per un normale prigioniero sul suolo statunitense. Le associazioni per i diritti umani sostengono che il solo detenere questi uomini a tempo indeterminato e senza un regolare processo costituisca una forma di tortura. Inoltre, i detenuti ...

Washington, DC : 17 min.Brownback Comments from Detainee Facility at Guantanamo BayWASHINGTON - U.S. Senator Sam Brownback today returned from leading a Congressional delegation to visit the detainee facility at Guantanamo Bay in Cuba."Guantanamo Bay is a world-class detention facility that would be almost impossible to replicate elsewhere," said Brownback. "Rumors of Guantanamo Bay being a black hole are unfounded. I am struck by the contrast between Guantanamo Bay and prisons I have toured in the past.

The Guantana-martyrs of Guantanamo Bay?
No sensible person can condone the actions of 22 people on September/11 2001. To needlessly kill thousands of innocent people is an act of violence so abhorrent it is without precedent.

Outlandish - Guantanamo
Image via WikipediaOutlandish ( Guantanamo )by khamedxOutlandish est un groupe européen de hip hop basé au Danemark. Formé en 1997, il est composé d'Isam Bachiri (originaire du Maroc), Waqas Ali Qadri (originaire du Pakistan), et Lenny Martinez (originaire du Honduras). Leur musique R&B/Hip-hop/Rap est largement influencée par les différents milieux sociaux d'où ils viennent (musique arabe, pakistanaise ou hispanique), et bien que leurs chansons soient principalement en anglais, ils utilisent fréquemment des paroles en espagnol, ourdou, et arabe. Leur simple Pacific To Pacific tiré de leur premier album Outland's Official (2000) a été directement lié à un évènement caritatif organisé par Amnesty International. Ils ont ensuite sortie leur second simple, Saturday Night, une chanson qui allait par la suite faire partie de la bande originale du film danois Pizza King. Mais ce sont les singles de leur second album Bread And Barrels Of Water sorti en 2003 qui ont le plus marqué les...

The awfully nice guys allowing US torture at Guantanamo Bay
The thing is ? they knew. It was the US government's explicit policy to wipe away the Geneva conventions and subject the supposedly most dangerous captives to what were euphemistically called "aggressive" interrogation techniques ? techniques that flouted international law. The people behind the policy are therefore, according to the British human rights lawyer Philippe Sands, criminals who may well face charges should they choose to take a holiday in, say, France or Germany. And who are they, these people? Top government lawyers who ? at the behest of Donald Rumsfeld, the then defence secretary ? cooked up a means of bypassing Geneva and in effect allowed the interrogators on the tip of Cuba to do whatever the hell they wanted. And, at Guantanamo Bay, lowly, inexperienced lawyers on the ground who were left isolated to provide the legal regulation for what might constitute humane treatment and what might not. Meanwhile some of the top military brass, including General...

"Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay" Review
Preshow: Before the movie, my dad and I stopped across the street at the Chinese buffet? and holy shit did that food back me up. Enough about that. I don?t think you want me to go into just what happened after that. But then we bought our ticket, walked in, and I? walked in? on a guy? and a girl? yeah, you got the idea. I don?t know if he spunked while they did it, but if he did, it would have been pretty gross, because to make it look good, he started making out with the girl afterwards. I?m not gonna go all ?Clerks II?-?ass to mouth,? but yeah. So I sat in front of them to make sure that they wouldn?t do it again? and I don?t think they did.

Gut Check for the "Close Guantanamo" Crowd
Part of the public campaign to close Guantanamo involves the claim that it houses many innocent people who were swept up from the battlefields where the U.S. military is operating. Now Reuters is reporting that someone released from Guantanamo has died in a suicide attack in Iraq. Abdullah Saleh al-Ajmi, a Kuwaiti national, reportedly killed himself in an attack in Mosul. He had been held in Guantanamo until his 2005 release and repatriation. Fortunately, we have not recently suffered the spectacle...(read more)

Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay
Starring: John Cho, Kal Penn, Neil Patrick Harris Director: Jon Hurwitz and Hay Schlossberg Release Date: April 25, 2008 Running Time: 102 min MPAA Rating: R Distributor: Warner Bros - - - Review by Jeremy Welsch - - - Man, these guys have had a rough couple of days. Picking up immediately at the end of the first movie, Harold and Kumar Escape From Guantanamo Bay does not waste any time getting back into the story. Having just professed his affection for his neighbor Maria, Harold (John Cho) decides he and Kumar (Kal Penn) need a vacation. This is a stoner movie, so it makes sense that they end up trying to go to Amsterdam. Each of the guys has his own agenda for wanting to be there. Harold doesnt want to be apart from Maria, who just happens to be there on business, and Kumar wants to be for the same reason as most of the people who travel there: legal marijuana. So here we are, staring down the barrel of inevitability at the sequel to a story about a couple of pot smokers a...

9/11 families to see Guantanamo trials
mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and five other suspects so relatives of those killed in the attacks can watch on the U.S. mainland" href="http://www.msnbc.msn.com/-id/24199166/">The U.S. military will televise the Guantanamo trial of accused September 11 mastermind Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and five other suspects so relatives of those killed in the attacks can watch on the U.S. mainland. "We're going to broadcast in real time to several locations that will be available just to victim families," Army Col. Lawrence Morris, chief prosecutor for the controversial war crimes court, said at the naval base recently. In February, military prosecutors charged Mohammed and five other captives with murder and conspiracy and asked that they be executed if convicted of plotting to crash hijacked planes into New York's World Trade Center and the Pentagon in 2001. The only thing that would make me happier, is if they televise the executions if they are convicted. Throw it on pay per view an...
