American press hides away (for Obama) news about the Guantanamo concentration camp hunger strike now in its second month

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ The US propaganda system sure aids out in assisting the US government and US military in their continued torture of people who have been convicted of no crime, as is the case with many of the POWs ('detainees') held by the Pentagon on Cuban territory in its concentration camp placed there. Actually, these hunger strikes have been going on at Guantanamo for over a decade now, with the compliant US big corporate press hiding this fact away from the American public... 38641

Afghan Taliban set high POW standard

There it is. The Afghans have captured a POW, we've been sent his image in RGB with a personal message to the American public. US military spokesmen are calling the video a violation of the laws of war. Secretary of State Clinton is calling it "just outrageous and a real sign of desperation and inappropriate criminal behavior." She's probably right about the desperation. But showing no signs of nudity, degradation, brutalization or rigor mortis, Army Private Bergdahl is faring better than any US detainee. 8224

Avenge Vietnam among other things

The wait was long at the post office, prompting a gentleman ahead of me to remark "Soon this is what health care is going to be like. Get used to it." I might have agreed, if he hadn't gone on to expound with unsolicited details. "Socialized medicine like Obama has in mind will lead us to ruin -etc, etc." I had to chime in. "A good part of the population can only hope their health care will be as easy to get as walking into the postal office." 3704

Yoo who?

The Bush Administration, after years of lying, has finally admitted that it is using torture on POWs. This it is doing after all those years of MIA/ POW campaigning against Vietnam, who were supposedly holding in secret some of our noble US soldiers in hidden camps, way years after the war. That campaign by the Right Wing- Love our Troops crowd- was ludicrous, of course, since there never were any missing GIs left behind. 3163
