"It is incredible that Khaled el-Masri was kidnaped
by US government agents, abused and transported to Afghanistan for torture in a
secret prison, then dumped on an Albanian hillside five months later when
agents realized he was not the right person. This sounds more like the behavior
of Nazi Germany or Chile under
Augusto Pinochet. The US
has become a rogue nation, one that believes it alone has the right to
disregard legal norms and the rights of other nations. The state secrets
defense, born solely out of the military's desire to cover up its lies and
ineptitude in the US vs. Reynolds case, has been allowed by courts to become an
easy way for the government to avoid accountability." - Alex
"El-Masri's ordeal received front-page media coverage throughout
the world and has been the subject of criminal and intergovernmental
investigations in Europe. His allegations are supported by eyewitness testimony
and physical evidence. Nonetheless, when we brought suit against former
CIA Director George
Tenet and others seeking compensation for the brutal treatment of El-Masri,
the Bush administration insisted
the case be dismissed because any litigation of the claims would reveal state
secrets. The government's argument prevailed, and the
Supreme Court declined to intervene. As
the law stands, the US can engage in torture, declare it a state secret and, by
virtue of that designation alone, avoid any accountability for conduct that
violates the Constitution and universal
human rights guarantees. A broad range of
executive misconduct has been
shielded from judicial review under this doctrine." - Ben Wizner
"Extraordinary renditions are utterly inconsistent with our broader
foreign policy goals of promoting
democracy and the rule of law, the
very foundations of civil society. These practices have brought America
universal condemnation and have frustrated our
efforts to work in a concerted way with our allies in fighting terrorism.
They also yield no good intelligence.
Up until November
2007 over a hundred people had experienced "extraordinary" renditions and not a
single one has been convicted of a crime. These renditions have undermined our
very commitment to fundamental American values. These fundamental American
values are what define us a people, as a nation. When we allow our government
to undermine them, we
undermine everything we stand
for, everything we are.
Look at the case of Khaled El-Masri, an
innocent man kidnapped and brought to Afghanistan by the CIA where he was
brutally interrogated and then dumped off in the Albanian countryside. Nations
across the globe envy our commitment to freedom and the
rule of law. But they are appalled at
our hypocrisy when we betray those
values." - Congressman William Delahunt

No Gun Ri In the
chaotic early days of the Korean War,
groups of refugees fleeing a North Korean advance attempted to cross American
lines despite warning shots. Up to 400 refuges, mostly women and children, were
shot in one incident because American soldiers suspected the group contained
Communist gunmen. A document found in the National Archives in April
2007 noted that the army had a policy of shooting approaching civilians. A
memo, dated July 25, 1950, from the United States Fifth Air Force regarding
"Policy on Strafing Civilian Targets", written by USAF Colonel Turner C. Rogers
recalls that, "the army has requested that we strafe all civilian refugee
parties that are noted approaching our positions," and that, "to date, we have
complied with the army request in this regard."
In 1999 the
New York Times reported that 30 South
Korean survivors and relatives of
victims had filed a lawsuit in 1997 that "described a three-day period of
killing, saying that American planes had strafed hundreds of refugees who were
fleeing from North Korean troops, leaving about 100 people dead. The
survivors fled under the bridge,
where they said they were pinned by American troops who shot and killed almost
all the refugees." The suit was rejected on a technicality.(The technicality is
might makes right!)
The archives of the Vietnam War
Crimes Working Group, made up of staff members assigned to General William
C. Westmoreland, filed at the National Archives in College Park, Maryland
substantiated 300 atrocities which included: seven massacres from 1967 through
1971 in which at least 137 civilians died; seventy-eight other attacks on
noncombatants in which at least 57 were killed, 56 wounded and 15
sexually assaulted; One hundred forty-one
instances in which American soldiers tortured civilian detainees or prisoners
of war with fists, sticks, bats, water or electric shock.
Members of a
reconnaissance platoon swept through the Que Son Valley, burning homes,
slaughtering animals and clearing
civilians. Members of the platoon killed: an unarmed boy standing outside a
cluster of huts; three women and three children in a hut; executed an elderly
woman and a baby; raped a woman and a young girl and then executed civilian
detainees. The unit reported the victims as enemy killed in action.
the same day as the massacre at My Lai, American soldiers from the same
division killed an undetermined number of women and children in neighboring My
Khe. American soldiers tossed grenades into shelters and shot women, and
children as they ran for cover or tried to flee. Over the next three days,
members of the unit burned three sub-hamlets to the ground and tortured
detainees with electric shocks. The unit reported 39 enemy combatants killed
but recovered no weapons and suffered no casualties.
American helicopter "hunter-killer" team attacked a
village in Cambodia with rockets and
machine gun fire, killing eight civilians, including two children, and wounding
15. After the attack, an American captain landed with a platoon of South

other war materiel were found. The troops provided no medical treatment to the
wounded and made off with "large quantities of civilian property, including
tobacco, poultry, and radios, and the American captain returned to the aircraft
with a motorcycle."

"It is almost impossible for a Marine warrior to take on the
mantle of benevolent overseer. When American soldiers are sent out to kill the
enemy, and then become the force of an occupying power where there is no force
monopoly, atrocities are
inevitable. It happened in Vietnam War;
it is happening in Iraq. The problem is exacerbated by being in an alien
culture with overextended tours of duty. The
tension of being constantly on guard against ambush and death, of not being
able to respond with a trained warrior's need to act with decisive force,
develops enormous pressures. It does
not take a psychiatrist to deduce that among 150,000 men and women, something
or someone has got to give to release that pressure. I do not believe we
can bully people into our form of democracy; we can only corrupt our own." -

It is possibly the oldest, easily the

steps must be taken to smash the war racket:
We must take the
profit out of war;
We must permit those who would bear arms to decide
whether or not there should be war;
We must limit our military forces to
home defense purposes.
The chief aim of any power of disarmament
conferences has not been to achieve disarmament to prevent war but rather to
get more armament. Professional soldiers and sailors don't want to disarm. No
admiral wants to be without a ship. No general wants to be without a command.
They are not for disarmament. They cannot be for limitations of arms. And at
all these conferences, lurking in the background but all-powerful, just the
same, are the sinister agents
of those who profit by war. They see to it that these conferences do not
disarm or seriously limit armaments.
Yes, ships will continue to be
built, for the shipbuilders must make their profits. And guns still will be
manufactured and powder and rifles will be made, for the munitions makers must
make their huge profits. And the soldiers,
of course, must wear uniforms, for the manufacturer must make their war profits
There is only one way to disarm with any semblance of
practicability. That is for all nations to get together and scrap every ship,
every gun, every rifle, every tank, every war plane. " - Major General
