i was watching this vid on AJE and I couldn't help but think of how Prez Obama said earlier that he want's to close the jail in Cuba.
check this out:
and a lot of those detainess don't even have anything to do with terrorism. They are just suspected of involvement in that.Yemen is struggling with the possible release of the largest group of detainees at the US detention centre in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba.
So those same detainees suffer what-ever humiliating punishments they get from persons from the CIA who interrogate them, threaten them....and so on ...and so on....
Even threaten their families, I wouldn't be surprised.
It's not uncommon for family members to be threatened to be harmed if the person who's being interrogated, doesn't give information that others want from him.
Do you think it's ethical for that kind of behavior??
Would you want to have the crap scared out of you so bad that your threatened with harm to your family??
Maybe it doesn't affect you now b/c your in front of your computer and it's all happening to somebody else instead. Not you.
anyways...on to other things..
I can see the logic of that.....The US has cautioned that if Yemen does not build a rehabilitation centre where former detainees can be coached to abandon all forms of radical ideology, it will transfer the men to Saudi Arabia, something Yemen strongly disagrees with....
Saudi Arabia is known for it's human rights abuses.
That's a known fact.
It's also a known fact that it's a place of torture for prisoners from Cuba to be sent to for further interrogation if the CIA, FBI, and what-ever other organization is in the States that does interrogation, and can't get enough info out of the prisoners.
So they send them to places like Saudi Arabia, Egypt, and other lands for interrogation and human rights abuses like 'waterboarding', 'silent noise', and other torture techniques that have been refined and used for interrogation.
No wonder Yemen doesn't like that idea.
I guess he didn't pledge to honor to stop human right's violations. Did he??.....Barack Obama, the US president, pledged in his first executive order last January to close the infamous prison within a year's time.
