US SENATE CANDIDATE MAKES new RECOMMENDATION FOR PLACEMENT OF GUANTANAMO PRISONERS IN THE USA: The W. Ranch near Crawford, Texas
A Writing on the 150th anniversary of the Harper's Ferry Incidents
Dear Fellow Americans,
It is 2009 and the horrors of Guantanamo Prisoners and lack of prisoner rights barring torture and rights to lawyers and US courts definitely need to come to an end this year.
There has to be accountability concerning the past--and investigations into the past must be undertaken. We cannot look back until human rights have a major place in the hearts of Americans, i.e. the very many confused Americans who have come to question whether torture and kangaroo courts are against American ideals.
These national shames from events and neglects over the last decade have led to a growing and dangerous anti-Americanism worldwide.
Like John Brown did in a previous age, Americans are again called upon to take a stand.
Some months ago, I first advocated that the remaining Guantanamo prisoners be sent to Ft. Benning, Georgia, where the former SCHOOL OF THE AMERICAS was located--and continues to be located under an new pseudonym, "Western Hemisphere Institute for Security Cooperation.
So, far Congress and Senators from the state of Kansas have not pushed for the symbolic move.
Now, in the tradition of symbolism of the Harper's Ferry fighters under former Kansan John Brown, who is being commemorated today, I make a new proposal.
NOTE: "Commemorations are being held in West Virginia, Pennsylvania, Virginia and Maryland today to mark the 150th anniversary of abolitionist John Brown's raid on the arsenal at Harpers Ferry." They should be being held in Kansas.
