Jihad – Gitmo – Jihad

    12

    Gitmo – Guantanamo este probabil cea mai faimoasă închisoare a începutului de secol XXI, presa internaţională reuşind să o transforme într-un simbol al politicii americane sub George W. Bush. Nu a fost întrecută în publicitate decât temporar de către Abu Ghraib, altă închisoare devenită simbol al opresiunii americane. Priviţi ce păţesc inamicii Occidentului: sunt arestaţi, deţinuţi fără proces şi chinuţi în văzul întregii lumi! Occidentalii ipocriţi şterg pe jos cu propriile principii: răpiri, zboruri secrete, complicitate a statelor est-europene, tortură.

    Ziarele au scris constant despre „iadul” din Guantanamo, artiştii s-au revoltat, progresiştii din stradă au urlat. Teroriştii de la Guantanamo, victime ale imperialismului american, au fost transformaţi în eroi. Occidentul atât de puţin interesat de soarta prizonierilor din Gulag, închişi pentru vina de a fi „duşmani ai poporului”, a lăcrimat pentru criminalii care nu trăiesc decât pentru a ucide.

    Şi totuşi, din când în când mai dăm peste ştiri precum aceasta (The Jawa Report):

    Pentagonul a declarat marţi că se pare că 61 de foşti deţinuţi ai închisorii din Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, s-au întors la terorism imediat ce au fost eliberaţi.

    Purtătorul de cuvânt al Pentagonului, Geoff Morrell, a spus că 18 deţinuţi sunt confirmaţi, iar 43 sunt suspectaţi de „reîntoarcere la luptă”.

    Numerele, reactualizate în decembrie, prezintă o rată crescută a recidivismului, comparativ cu raportul precedent care arată 37 de foşti deţinuţi deveniseră militanţi activi.

    Nu a prezentat detalii cu privire la deţinuţi sau ţara lor de origine.

    Reîntoarcerea la terorism a crescut la 7% la 11%, a declarat Morrell.

    Numerele au fost obţinute de Agenţia de Informaţii ale Apărării a Pentagonului, în baza rapoartelor de informaţii, a fotografiilor şi a amprentelor.

    Preşedintele ales Barack Obama, care va fi învestit marţi, este aşteptat să emită un decret de închiderii a închisorii Guantanamo, posibil chiar în prima săptămână a preşedinţiei sale.

    În jur de 255 de oameni sunt deţinuţi în prezent în baza navală din Cuba, simbol al metodelor agresive de interogare ce au făcut Statele Unite vulnerabile la acuzaţiile de tortură.

    Traseul „militanţilor” a fost Jihad – Gitmo – Jihad, dar pentru marile conştiinţe, pentru aceşti Robert Fisk** de pretutindeni, a-i ţine închişi este inuman, dar a-i lăsa să ucidă este uman.

    * Niciodată numiţi astfel, fiind preferată limba de lemn: „militanţi”, „luptători din rezistenţă”, etc. A se vedea ca exemplu ştirea din Reuters, tradusă mai sus.

    ** Robert Fisk, jurnalist la The Independent; devenit faimos pentru articolele sale pro-islamice şi pentru că, după ce a scăpat ca prin urechile acului de la a fi linşat de o gloată de afghani furioşi, a declarat că dacă ar fi fost în locul lor, şi el ar fi vrut să îl bată pe Robert Fisk.

    12 COMENTARII

    1. Abdullah Saleh al-Ajmi, unul dint cei eliberati de la Guantanamo Bay, a negat ca ar fi fost un jihadist si ca toate marturiile impotriva sa la Guantanamo erau mincinoase. Prins in Afghanistan in 2002, al-Ajmi era dezertor din armata Kuweitului implicat in miscarea talibana. A fost eliberat pe cautiune si repatriat in noiembrie 2005 ca sa se afle ca pe 30 aprilie 2008, unul dintre atacurile sinucigase din Irak a fost savarsit de al-Ajmi. Desi trebuia sa fie judecat in tara sa pentru adunare de fonduri pentru Al-Qaeda si pentru alte fapte, al-Ajmi a fost protejat prin chitibuserii avocatesti. Varul sau Salem a declarat televiziunii al-Arabiya:

      „We were shocked by the painful news we received … from one of the friends of martyr Abdullah in Iraq.”

      Familia a fost socata de “martirajul” lui al-Ajmi. Probabil ca a omorat cativa musulmani ca si el…

    2. Eu cred ca oamenii atunci cand traiesc prea bine, au niste reflexe puternice care pur shi simplu nu ii lasa sa vada o realitate care le-ar murdari lumea lor de portelan. Deci omul asta e simplu retardat.

      Stiu ca e un post inutil, dar ma dezgusta atat prostie.

    3. Gitmo trials halted by Obama order

      In one of his first acts in office President Obama has ordered the U.S. government to suspend prosecutions of prisoners at Guantanamo Bay for 120 days, military officials said Tuesday.
      Papers filed at the U.S. prison camp said the request is made “in the interest of justice and at the direction of the president of the United States.” It seeks a delay in proceedings until May 20.

      “The judges will receive the requests and review them, and we anticipate a ruling soon,” said Cmdr. Jeffrey Gordon, a Defense Department spokesman.

      Tuesday’s directive was issued verbally through Defense Secretary Bob Gates, according to a military official.

      Obama had vowed to close the naval prison at the U.S. base. While Obama’s order does not go that far, it will stop the prosecutions of 21 detainees currently facing war crimes charges.

      Americans Send No Clear Mandate on Guantanamo Bay

      WASHINGTON, D.C. — While President Barack Obama has signaled he may take action toward closing the U.S. prison Guantanamo Bay during his first days in office, Americans are sending no clear mandate on the issue. Slightly more think the United States should not close the prison than say it should, 45% to 35%.

      These views are similar to those expressed in 2007, at which time 33% favored closing the prison but 53% were opposed and 13% had no opinion. The major difference since that time is that slightly fewer now favor keeping the prison open (from 53% to 45%), and slightly more do not express an opinion (from 13% to 20%).

    4. si eu am citit dimineata stirea si asta mi-a sarit in ochi:

      Another Guantanamo judge halted the case against young Canadian captive Omar Khadr, who was captured at age 15 and is accused of murdering a U.S. soldier with a grenade during a firefight in Afghanistan in 2002.

      „The practical effect of today’s ruling is to pronounce the military commissions process dead,” said his lawyer, Navy Lt. Cmdr. William Kuebler, referring to the trials by their formal name.

      Khadr, now 22, is the last citizen of a Western nation held at Guantanamo. His lawyers have argued that he was a child soldier conscripted by his late father, an al Qaeda financier, and that any prosecution should take place in the regular U.S. or Canadian courts.

    5. WASHINGTON – President Barack Obama began overhauling U.S. treatment of terror suspects Thursday, signing orders to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center, review military war crimes trials and ban the harshest interrogation methods.

      „We intend to win this fight. We’re going to win it on our terms,” Obama said as he signed three executive orders and a presidential directive in the Oval Office. Obama explained each order before he put his pen to them, in some cases reading them in full, and occasionally solicited input from White House counsel Greg Craig to make sure he was describing them correctly.

      With his action, Obama started changing how the United States prosecutes and questions al-Qaida, Taliban or other foreign fighters who pose a threat to Americans — and overhauling America’s image abroad, battered by accusations of the use of torture and the indefinite detention of suspects at the Guantanamo prison in Cuba.

      „The message that we are sending the world is that the United States intends to prosecute the ongoing struggle against violence and terrorism and we are going to do so vigilantly and we are going to do so effectively and we are going to do so in a manner that is consistent with our values and our ideals,” the president said.

      The centerpiece order would close the much-maligned Guantanamo facility within a year, a complicated process with many unanswered questions that was nonetheless a key campaign promise of Obama’s. The administration already has suspended trials for terrorist suspects at Guantanamo for 120 days pending a review of the military tribunals.

      „We are willing to observe core standards of conduct not just when it’s easy but also when it’s hard,” the president said.

      In other actions, Obama:

      _Created a task force that would have 30 days to recommend policies on handling terror suspects who are detained in the future. Specifically, the group would look at where those detainees should be housed since Guantanamo is closing.

      _Required all U.S. personnel to follow the U.S. Army Field Manual while interrogating detainees. The manual explicitly prohibits threats, coercion, physical abuse and waterboarding, a technique that creates the sensation of drowning and has been termed a form of torture by critics. However, a Capitol Hill aide says that the administration also is planning a study of more aggressive interrogation methods that could be added to the Army manual — which would create a significant loophole to Obama’s action Thursday.

      _Directed the Justice Department to review the case of Qatar native Ali al-Marri, who is the only enemy combatant currently being held on U.S. soil. The review will look at whether al-Marri has the right to sue the government for his freedom, a right the Supreme Court already has given to Guantanamo detainees. The directive will ask the high court for a stay in al-Marri’s appeals case while the review is ongoing. The government says al-Marri is an al-Qaida sleeper agent.

      An estimated 245 men are being held at the U.S. naval base in Cuba, most of whom have been detained for years without being charged with a crime. Among the sticky issues the Obama administration has to resolve are where to put those detainees — whether back in their home countries or at other federal detention centers — and how to prosecute some of them for war crimes.

    6. Correspondents in Beirut | January 24, 2009
      Article from: The Australian
      A FORMER Guantanamo Bay detainee has emerged as the deputy leader of al-Qa’ida’s Yemeni branch, highlighting the problems associated with closing the detention centre within a year.

      Reports yesterday said the militant, Said Ali al-Shihri, was suspected of involvement in a deadly bombing of the US embassy in Yemen’s capital, Sana, in September. He was released to Saudi Arabia in 2007 and passed through a Saudi rehabilitation program for former jihadists before resurfacing with al-Qa’ida in Yemen.

      His status was announced in an internet statement by the militant group and was confirmed to The New York Times by an American counter-intelligence official.

      „They’re one and the same guy,” the official told the paper. „He returned to Saudi Arabia in 2007, but his movements to Yemen remain unclear.”

      The reports said almost half the remaining detainees in Guantanamo were Yemenis and that efforts to repatriate them depended in part on the creation of a Yemeni rehabilitation program – partly financed by the US – similar to the Saudi one. Saudi Arabia has previously claimed that no graduate of its program has returned to terrorism.

      „The lesson here is: whoever receives former Guantanamo detainees needs to keep a close eye on them,” the official told the paper.

      The Pentagon has said on at least two occasions – including earlier this month – that dozens of released Guantanamo detainees have „returned to the fight” but it has provided scant detail. A Saudi security official told the paper that Shihri had disappeared from his home in Saudi Arabia last year after finishing the rehabilitation program.

      A Yemeni journalist who interviewed al-Qa’ida’s leaders in Yemen last year, Abdulela Shaya, confirmed to the paper that the deputy leader was Shihri, the former Guantanamo detainee.

      Shaya told the Times that Shihri had described to him his journey from Cuba to Yemen and had supplied his Guantanamo detention number, 372.

      That is the correct number, Pentagon documents show.

      Of the 245 inmates remaining in Guantanamo, there is still a core of men deemed to be genuine terrorists.

    7. Imperialistu’:

      Obama si acolitii sai de la DOJ, de speta lui Eric Holder, si-au insusit perfect una din teoriile de baza ale postmodernismului relativist din universitatile „progresiste” pe care le-au frecventat: Change the name, and you’ll change first perception and then reality.
      Daca-i numesti „prieteni alienati ai Statelor Unite” se rezolva problema.
      Sau, si mai radical (de ce nu?), „unlisted/non-conventional freedom fighters”.
