Bush-Cheney Junta Continues to Violate International Law
The BBC is reporting that, according to Amnesty International, conditions for the 385 people being held hostage without due process by US "personnel" at the Guantanamo Bay Naval Base are actually getting worse. Most hostages are now being held in solitary confinement, isolated twenty-two hours daily and only allowed to exercise at night. Many routinely go for days without seeing sunlight. This news comes after Bush's newly appointed Defense Secretary, Robert Gates, has recommended closing the facility because it hurts our ability to get along with other countries that are opposed to both terrorism and fascism.
