A decade or more ago Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld claimed, as part of the "scare Americans to death about terrorism" strategy, that the prisoners in Washington's Guantanamo prison are "the most dangerous, best-trained, vicious killers on the face of the earth." Rumsfeld's erroneous claim was endlessly repeated by the presstitutes and swallowed whole by the gullible American and European public.

Nothing could have been further from the truth. At the time, I pointed out that in fact the prisoners were innocents captured by warlords in response to Washington's offer of a bounty for terrorists and sold to the US for money. The prisoners consisted of aide workers, traveling salesmen, and any unprotected people that warlords happened upon. Washington needed "terrorist prisoners" in order to cloak its massive war crime.

I was correct, not Rumsfeld. After many years of torture and brutal treatment, and despite attempted kangaroo court military trials, almost every single prisoner, about 700 males, turned out to be innocent and had to be released without charges after losing a decade or more of their lives to being tortured by the Americans.

The US government has a long record of shameful behavior, and the 14-year-long torture of fake "terrorists" in Guantanamo defines the inhumane character of the US government and its presstitutes, people devoid of integrity and insensitive to justice. It also shows that the US government has no difficulty in finding a sufficient number of psychopaths in the US military, CIA, and among academic psychologists to do its dirty work in its torture dungeons.

According to RT, Kuwaiti national Fayez Mohammed Ahmed Al-Kandari (pictured above), detained illegally for 14 years in the Guantanamo Bay military prison, where he was repeatedly tortured, was transferred and sent to his home country in January. Al-Kandari, now 40, was never charged with any war crimes. Read about it here.
