Viewing War on Terrorism NEWS articles 1 through 16 of 16.
- The decision comes as a reaction to the "rendition" of terror suspects from Europe to locations that allow less-restrictive interrogation.
- More than 200 detainees in Guantánamo Bay are in their fifth week of a hunger strike, the Guardian has been told.
- The U.S. military is tube-feeding more than a dozen of the 89 terror suspects on hunger strike at the Guantanamo Bay prison in Cuba, a spokesman said Friday
- American justice is an oxymoron. Under Bush, there is neither justice nor a system; just the willful conduct of bullies who act according to the most cynical impulses. Roberts is the embodiment of the present paradigm; a man whose adult life has been devoted to secret organizations, like the Federalist Society, whose sole purpose is the dismantling of legal protections and civil liberties for the common man. He is the poster-boy of the new world order.
- Mashal said he was present in the Tora Bora mountains during the December 2001 operation, and that while U.S. forces were not there in uniform, green berets in plain clothes, some disguised in Uzbek style dress were present.
- Dozens of detainees have joined a hunger strike at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp, bringing the number refusing food to 128, US officials say.
- ...the "new face" of Islamic terrorism is all-American. It can’t get much better for warmongering right-wingers and neocons that never saw an Arab or Muslim country they did not want to shock and awe into submission (or as Ann Coulter would have it, "invade their countries, kill their leaders and convert them to Christianity").
- The United States has supposedly created new "democracies' in Afghanistan and Iraq, but these endeavors give democracy a bad name.
- A hunger strike at the prison camp at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, has unsettled senior commanders there and produced the most serious challenge yet to the military's effort to manage the detention of hundreds of terrorism suspects, lawyers and officials say.
- I have a word of advice I would like to offer Donald Rumsfeld and the Pentagon chieftains who currently preside over the 200 or more hunger strikers at Guantanamo Bay, 20 of whom are near death.
- The report is an embarrassment to Washington and London as they claim stability and progress in Afghanistan.
- Two soldiers and an officer with the Army's 82nd Airborne Division have told a human rights organization of systemic detainee abuse and human rights violations at U.S. bases in Afghanistan and Iraq, recounting beatings, forced physical exertion and psychological torture of prisoners, the group said.
- A branch of the U.S. Navy secretly contracted a 33-plane fleet that included two Gulfstream jets reportedly used to fly terror suspects to countries known to practice torture, according to documents obtained by The Associated Press.
- The US military told an al-Jazeera cameraman being held at Guantánamo Bay that he would be released as long as he agreed to spy on journalists at the Arabic news channel, according to documents seen by the Guardian.
- And that’s what the al-Zarqawi Show is all about—instilling fear and loathing in the hearts and minds of all Americans, or rather Americans gullible enough to take the bait. It’s part of the process to get us to surrender our rights and allow the state to militarize all facets of our society.
- "I am slowly dying in this solitary prison cell," says Omar Deghayes, a British refugee and Guantánamo Bay prisoner. "I have no rights, no hope. So why not take my destiny into my own hands, and die for a principle?"
