"Torture" at Club Gitmo?

Human Rights Watch which has thus far failed to decry the terrorist murders committed by various Muslim organizations has called for "... a ban on abusive interrogations, and full respect for the Geneva Conventions regarding prisoners of war".

''Most of the detainees desperately want to go home. But there are a small number who are at such grave risk of torture that they would rather stay in Guantánamo,'' said Jennifer Daskal, advocacy director in Washington. She urged the Pentagon to establish a ``transparent process for this small set of detainees to raise fears of torture and have their claims evaluated, before the U.S. government sends people back to a fate worse than Guantánamo. [???]''

In bin Omar's case, she said, ``the United States got diplomatic assurances from Tunisia -- a no-torture promise from a country with a documented record of torture. How are they enforced? Who is doing the monitoring?'' [has Human Rights Watch considered condemning Tunisia, or is it more fun to condemn the U.S.?]
Human Rights Watch is demanding that a special prosecutor be named to investigate former Defense Secretary Donald Rumsfeld, former CIA director George Tenet and other top officials for "possible war crimes related to the torture and abuse of prisoners."

Don't Worry! Be Happy

London Mayor "Red Ken" Livingstone states that Londoners have no worries over threats of terrorist bomb attacks as the recent foiled car bomb incidents reveal the "amateurish" competence of the arrested muslims. He goes on to state:
"In this city, Muslims are more likely to be law-abiding [sharia?] than non-Muslims and less likely to support the use of violence to achieve political ends than non-Muslims," he told BBC Radio.
What planet is this jerk from?
