Bush 'Knew Guantánamo Prisoners Were Innocent'

By Tim Reid

George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld covered up that hundreds of innocent men were sent to the Guantánamo Bay prison camp because they feared that releasing them would harm the push for war in Iraq and the broader War on Terror, according to a new document obtained by The Times.

Prisoner demands compensation for Guantánamo nightmare

Colonel Lawrence Wilkerson's serious accusations against the Bush White House over Guantánamo Bay are made to support the cause of Adel Hassan Hamad, a former detainee who is now seeking compensation from the United States.

Why Was Cheney in Saudi Arabia?

Dick Cheney just went on a junket to meet with Saudi Arabian leaders, a quiet pow-wow that's been discussed in the Saudi media but not so much over here. Cheney-who's been busy defending torture and complaining that Barack Obama lets world leaders "think they're dealing with a weak president"-weakened the president by visiting a leading torture regime and its caliph, King Abdullah.

A baffling defense of Bush policy

Christian Science Monitor

04/13/10

In April 2003, I was embedded with the US Army’s 7th Cavalry in the western suburbs of Baghdad, sleeping on top of a Humvee. Seven years later I still wonder why we were there. So, I suspect, do many Americans. What responsibility — what options — do generals have when they believe civilian leaders, the president, the vice president, and the secretary of Defense, are bent on a ‘wrongheaded’ war? I recently put that question to former Undersecretary of Defense for Policy Douglas Feith, who served from 2001 to 2005 and was a major architect of the war in Iraq. ‘If it’s a debate over what’s the smart and right thing to do,’ he said, ‘the president is the elected representative of the American people. Somebody has to make policy for the country, and the country decides by democratic means [that] it’s going to be the president.’ His implication seemed clear. Americans elected George W.

Andy Worthington, Truthout: "Such is the prevailing disregard for the fate of the remaining prisoners in Guantanamo that last week, when Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, the chief of staff to former Secretary of State Colin Powell, submitted a declaration in a case brought by a former prisoner, in which he stated that George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld all knew - and didn’t care - that 'the vast majority of Guantanamo detainees were innocent,' almost no one noticed that one of the remaining 183 men had just lost his habeas corpus petition in a US court."
