Cambodia tribunal convicts Khmer Rouge leaders

Cambodia convicts Khmer Rouge leadersThey were leaders of Cambodia's infamous Khmer Rouge, the fanatical communist movement behind a 1970s reign of terror that transformed this entire Southeast Asian nation into a ruthless slave state — a place where cities were emptied of their inhabitants, religion and schools were banned, and anyone deemed a threat was executed.

When the nightmare ended, in 1979, close to 2 million people were dead — a quarter of Cambodia's population at the time.

Gaza: No place to bury the dead

No place to bury the deadUmm Mohammed Abu Sada uses her headscarf to block the stench of bodies, some of which have been lying outside for days.

"The smell of bodies knocks people down. It is horrible to see human bodies thrown onto the streets like that," she said. "The missiles are hitting everyone. There is nowhere for us to seek shelter."

Corpses of Palestinians have overwhelmed morgues at Rafah's hospitals, and some relatives have been left with no option but to keep their loved ones in commercial refrigerators. At the city's Kuwaiti hospital on Monday, ambulances negotiated their way through crowds of medical staff and families, delivering bodies to be laid out on the gravel outside the building.

Israeli Solders Under Investigation for War Crimes in Gaza

IDF war crimesPeople are crowding the streets of Gaza City and fishermen are back on the sea as Gazans seize the opportunity of a shaky three-day ceasefire to try to return to something like normal life. More than a quarter of Gaza’s 1.8 million people have been displaced by the fighting, so when Israeli troops withdrew on Tuesday morning, many Gazans clogged the roads, heading back to their neighborhoods to get some idea if anything is left in the places they fled.

The war has killed over 1,800 Palestinians, mostly civilians, hundreds of them children, and 67 Israelis, all but three of them soldiers. It has gone on for nearly a month with such ferocity that both Israel and Hamas, nearing exhaustion, have been looking for ways to claim victory and end the fighting.

Judge: 'Apparent' duty to release Guantánamo prisoners at Afghanistan War's end

GitmoA federal judge has passed up a Guantánamo detainee's demand for an order that he be released when the U.S. war in Afghanistan ends, but the jurist suggested that U.S. officials have an "apparent" legal duty to let such prisoners go when hostilities there conclude.

In a ruling issued Sunday, U.S. District Court Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly turned aside Kuwaiti detainee Fawzi al-Odah's plea, calling it an "abstract disagreement" at this point since thousands of U.S. troops remain in Afghanistan. However, her language indicated she was amenable to arguments that the U.S. government's authority to hold detainees concludes when the fighting in Afghanistan is over, or at least the U.S. role in such fighting is over.

Large Gaza Protest Outside White House

Anti Israel protestA pro-Palestinian rally and march on the White House drew thousands today, turning Pennsylvania Avenue and Lafayette Square, the park opposite the White House, into a sea of demonstrators.

CIA Torture Was Unnecessary, Senate Report To Conclude

Remsfeld and BushA U.S. Senate committee report will conclude that the CIA's use of harsh interrogation after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks yielded no critical intelligence on terrorist plots that could not have been obtained through non-coercive methods, U.S. officials familiar with the document said.

Foreshadowing the impending release of a report expected to suggest that the "enhanced" techniques were unnecessary and also to accuse some CIA officers of misleading Congress about the effectiveness of the program, President Barack Obama said on Friday that the CIA "tortured some folks." He had banned the practices soon after taking office in 2009.

U.S. appeals court upholds Guantanamo detainee frisk-search policy

Gitmo frisking upheldA U.S. appeals court on Friday upheld the Obama administration's new policy of search procedures at Guantanamo Bay that detainees had challenged saying invasive practices such as frisking of their anal and groin areas discourage them from consulting with their lawyers.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit reversed an earlier court ruling that favored the detainees. The appeals court said the administration's search policy, as well as a rule restricting the location of detainees' meetings with lawyers, are both "reasonable security precautions."
