Window Opens On Secret Camp Within Guantanamo

camp  7 guantanamoAttorney James Connell has visited his client inside the secret Guantanamo prison complex known as Camp 7 only once, taken in a van with covered windows on a circuitous trek to disguise the route on the scrub brush-and-cactus covered military base.

Connell is allowed to say virtually nothing about what he saw in the secret camp where the most notorious terror suspects in U.S. custody are held except that it is unlike any detention facility he's encountered.

"It's much more isolating than any other facility that I have known," the lawyer says. "I've done cases from the Virginia death row and Texas death row and these pretrial conditions are much more isolating."

Stuck in Tijuana hoping for a miracle: the deportees with nowhere to go

Tijuana deporteesRicardo Sanchez came to the United States from his native Mexico, illegally, when he was nine. He grew up, got married, raised five children. During the day, he sold fruit from a stall; nights, he cooked in a restaurant, where his specialty was a steak with blue cheese, bacon and bourbon sauce that the regulars knew by his name.

He built a life.

Last month, police caught Sanchez, who is now 34 years old, driving without a license, and handed him over to immigration authorities. Within days, he was walking into Tijuana, a city alien to him, the gate to the US clanging shut behind. As he moved forward through a metal passageway, he could see a concrete riverbed of slime dotted with the homes of some of his fellow deportees – shacks, sometimes, or just holes dug into the muck by hand.

Lawyers for alleged USS Cole bomber seek details on CIA rendition program

Abd  al RahimJust-released transcripts of a secret session at the Guantanamo war court show defense lawyers want a list of the countries where the CIA secretly jailed the alleged USS Cole bomber, and the names of people who worked at the agency's black sites. But the prosecution won't provide them.

The tug-of-war over transparency emerged days after the Senate voted to declassify a portion of an investigation of the so-called CIA Torture Program that could contain some of the answers sought by lawyers for Saudi Abd al Rahim al Nashiri before his death penalty trial.

For Shame: The Giant Poster That Shows Drone Pilots the People They're Bombing

For shame....drone strikesA drone's view of the huge poster placed in northwest Pakistan by Not a Bug Splat (Not a Bug Splat)

A new project, initiated by a collective of artists from around the world including the French JR, has tried to reach the people pulling the trigger in America's drone wars—the drone operators themselves.

It’s called “Not A Bug Splat,” and its gets its name from the term drone operators use for a successful “kill,” because—in the pixelated grayscale of the drone camera—ending a human life looks like squashing a bug.

International Rwandans mark 20th anniversary of genocide

Rwanda memorial

Thousands of Rwandans gathered Monday for a somber remembrance on the 20th anniversary of the Rwandan genocide, when close to a million people were butchered over the course of a 100-day period while the international community stood by, largely silent.

President Paul Kagame and United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon together lit a flame at the Kigali Genocide Memorial Center, which estimates that 1,000,050 Rwandans perished in three months of machete and gunfire attacks mostly aimed at the country's minority Tutsi population by extremist Hutus.

Thousands of Jerusalem Arabs without water

Palestinians in Jerusalem Tens of thousands of Palestinians living in east Jerusalem have been without running water for more than a month, victims of a decrepit and overwhelmed infrastructure and caught in a legal no-man's land caused by the divisions of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.

The residents of the Shuafat refugee camp are technically part of the Jerusalem municipality. But they live outside the massive West Bank separation barrier that Israel has built. So Israeli services are sparse, yet Palestinian authorities are barred from operating there or developing the water system.
