Real patriots are not COWARDS because they demand the prosecuting Bush et. al. for war crimes.
Our country can no longer speak with moral authority on these critical issues. We must regain ethical leadership according to international human rights norms that we had officially adopted as our own and cherished throughout the years.
American must stand for a bold and clear commitment that power would no longer serve as a cover to oppress or injure people, and it established equal rights of all people to life, liberty, security of person, equal protection of the law and freedom from torture, arbitrary detention or forced exile.
Our government’s counterterrorism policies are now clearly violating at least 10 of the declaration’s 30 articles, including the prohibition against “cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment.”
The NDAA law violates the right to freedom of expression and to be presumed innocent until proved guilty, two other rights enshrined in the declaration.
Despite an arbitrary rule that any man killed by drones is declared an enemy terrorist, the death of nearby innocent women and children is accepted as inevitable.
The detention facility at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, now houses 169 prisoners. About half have been cleared for release, yet have little prospect of ever obtaining their freedom.
