Gen Myers appearing on Fox News says the camp is a "model facility"
Top US general Richard Myers has described an Amnesty International report on Guantanamo Bay as "absolutely irresponsible".
The human rights group last week described the US detention camp in Cuba as "the gulag of our time".
But Gen Myers said the US military treated detainees there humanely. end quote.
No sieg heil here, daddy-o.
In Geneva, the ICRC said it would neither confirm nor deny the New York Times report -- in which allegations of treatment tantamount to torture go further than what the neutral intermediary has publicly stated before about inmates held at Guantanamo. end quote.
I wonder who strong-armed the ICRC? It takes a lot of bullies, bribes and backroom deals to force silence from the ICRC. I guess in order to serve the detainees' best interest, the organization must remain silent in matters concerning the ... Geneva Conventions.
As far as I'm concerned, two sources, Amnesty International and the International Committee of the Red Cross, have indicted the Bush Regime. I'll be very happy to see Bush, Rumsfeld, et al behind bars and turned pale.
