08/28/2004 Entry: "Yaser E. Hamdi to go free"

"WASHINGTON, Aug. 27 - A federal judge on Friday ordered the government to explain why Yaser E. Hamdi, an enemy combatant captured in Afghanistan, has remained in solitary confinement in a military brig for more than two years, even as prosecutors and defense lawyers are negotiating his imminent release.

"The judge, Robert G. Doumar, of Federal District Court in Norfolk, Va., said in his order that "without question, the isolation of a prisoner from the general population for an indefinite period of time raises Eighth Amendment issues," as well as due process concerns. The Eighth Amendment bars cruel and unusual punishment for prisoners."
U.S. Set Back on Treatment of Combatant, by Eric Lichtblau, NYTimes, August 28, 2004

The goddamn bush administration has a lot to answer for.

Yes, I know, Pelican Bay, but those people had some kind of trial at least.

And, you know, Islam must be an incredible faith because if you look at what we're doing to people, here and in Iraq, and look at the way they're surviving it, it makes me question why anyone would think our way is better. If you consider the way the United States has been behaving lately, it would give the casual observer only one conclusion: our way sucks.

Oh, and by the way, I heard about Hamdi in a Ted Rall cartoon, thank you again useless US press.
