US Defense Bill, Passed by Congress, Bans Transfer of Guantanamo Prisoners

The National Defense Authorization Act, passed by the US Senate 89-11 on Friday, would fund the US Department of Defense through fiscal year 2015, but it prohibits the department from transferring prisoners from the notorious Guantanamo Bay prison, despite US President Barack Obama's promises to close down the detention facility.

Webmaster's Commentary: 

How bloody convenient.

Innocent men who will NEVER be released from Gitmo, because water boarding was not the worst of what was done to them, languishing behind bars for the rest of their lives.

Apparently, this has become "The American Way" of treating prisoners of war; and it is not all that dissimilar from the way alleged "law enforcement officers" treat the American general public.

Would I, as a law-abiding citizen, minding my own business, EVER call the police right now if I thought something criminal was going on in my neighborhood?!?

I rather think not. Innocent people in this country are getting slaughtered in this country, just for being at the wrong place at the wrong time. And before you criticize that outlook, please consider the following, as reported yesterday at blacklistednews.com:

Acting on a bogus tip about methamphetamine from a car thief, the Laurens County Sheriff’s office obtained a search warrant for the home of devoted husband, loving father and grandfather, David Hooks. An hour after the judge signed the warrant police raided Hooks’ house and took the life of this innocent grandfather. An attorney representing David Hooks’ widow says that the September 24, shooting did not go down as law enforcement authorities stated in initial news releases, and the “true facts of this tragedy are in stark contrast” to official accounts. At approximately 11:00 pm on September 24, Laurens County Sheriff’s deputies barged unannounced into the home of Hooks. The sheriff’s office claims Hooks was shot after he got out a firearm and started showing aggression. Hooks was met with 17 shots from SWAT officers. Since the Free Thought Project initially reported on this killing by police in October, recent revelations show that not only were no shots fired, but the shotgun wasn’t even loaded. Even if the shotgun would have been load and Hooks would have shot at the officers, he had every right, as he was protecting his wife and home from, who he perceived to be unannounced intruders, who obviously meant him harm. Police, adamant on trying to justify their breaking and entering and subsequent murder, searched the home for 44 straight hours and didn’t find one single shred of contraband. Mitchell Shook is the attorney for the family and he is asking for the FBI to investigate, citing that the raid was illegal. According to WMAZ, the family’s attorney says Hooks had four wounds, two of which he says are very problematic. Shook says that’s according to the Laurens County EMS records. He says the same information is found in the medical records from Fairview Park Hospital. “One was to the side of the head, the other, was in his back, the back of his left shoulder, based on the evidence we see, we believe that David Hooks was face down on the ground when he received those last two shots,” says Shook. Teresa Hooks who is still experiencing a nightmare inflicted upon her by those sworn to protect and serve, recalls that horrid night.

I would like to be able to even think that this raid, and other ones like it, where there is no true vetting of the information to begin with, are abberations in law enforcement; unfortunately, they are becoming much more standard.
