Little Known Military Thug Squad
“A little known Military Thug Squad is still brutalizing prisoners at Gitmo under Obama” -Jeremy Scahill
Jeremy Scahill reports the Obama administration is continuing to use a notorious military police unit at Guantanamo that regularly brutalizes unarmed prisoners, including gang-beating them, breaking their bones, gouging their eyes and dousing them with chemicals. This force, officially known as the Immediate Reaction Force, has been labeled the “Extreme Repression Force” by Guantanamo prisoners and human rights lawyers.

The American people have to wake up to the reality of the corruption that pervades our government. U.S. citizens will eventually realize that being American doesn't mean having blind faith in anything, be it religion, unregulated markets, or an increasing militaristic authoritarian corporate rule. It is our responsibility to ensure that our institutions, our government and businesses, do not violate the civil liberties of anyone anywhere. Every country that has tortured outside their boarders, eventually tortures within their boarders. Businesses that abuse workers outside their country's boarders, always lead the way to further abuse and lowering working conditions within their own country's boarders. "What goes around, comes around," is not just a saying but, in this case, a lesson from history. If we don't want to do what's right simply because it's right, we should at least do it because it's smart.
We must push to prosecute war crimes.
