The group Human Rights First has found that nearly 100 prisoners in US custody have died in Iraq and Afghanistan in the last three and a half years. At least 34 deaths were due to suspected or confirmed homicides. Another 11 deaths were deemed suspicious and up to twelve deaths were caused by lethal torture. The report found that most deaths went un-punished.

The report comes one week after a set of new photographs were released showing prisoner abuse at the US-run Abu Ghraib.

This is Americas legacy to apartheid dictatorship. This is democracy in action. No wonder when Bush said "They are jealous of our freedoms and way of life", they don't want it. We offer them democracy as an alternative for their system but Bush has already stated they don't want it. If this is the example of democracy and freedom that Bush spoke of then you can take your great system and shove it.

Which is what America does- shove it down their throats. This is the real torture from America. What an example of how great democracy is- Take it or we'll give it to you. Got Kodak?

Completely sane world
madness the only freedom

An ability to see both sides of a question
one of the marks of a mature mind

People don't choose to be dishonest
the choice chooses them

Now I know how Kusinich feels.
