Today, a kangaroo court authorized by Emperor Bush will be in session in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. According to Reuters, an American war crimes tribunal will hear the cases of two suspected al-Qaeda associates.

"The Pentagon is proceeding with the two cases even though U.S. courts have halted the trials of three other Guantanamo prisoners pending a U.S. Supreme Court ruling on whether Bush had authority to establish the tribunals. The high court will hear arguments in the case in March."

But here is the kicker:

"Only nine of the approximately 500 Guantanamo prisoners have been charged with crimes, and the legal advisor to the tribunals has said that probably no more than 50 to 75 ever will be."

Yup, you read it correctly. Basically, we are detaining (not to mention the torture) about 450 people without probable cause. Think about that. We already know that these people won't be charged with crimes, but we're keeping them anyway.

"They hate our freedoms--our freedom of religion, our freedom of speech, our freedom to vote and assemble and disagree with each other." -- Emperor Bush in October, 2001.
