Even the Innocent Were Knowingly Imprisoned and Tortured So As Not to Embarrass the Powerful

from Jesse’s Café Américain:

“Now, in a sworn declaration obtained exclusively by Truthout, Col. Lawrence Wilkerson, who was chief of staff to former Secretary of State Colin Powell during George W. Bush’s first term in office, said Bush, Cheney, and Rumsfeld knew the “vast majority” of prisoners captured in the so-called War on Terror were innocent and the administration refused to set them free once those facts were established because of the political repercussions that would have ensued…

Wilkerson said he “made a personal choice to come forward and discuss the abuses that occurred because knowledge that I served in an Administration that tortured and abused those it detained at the facilities at Guantánamo Bay and elsewhere and indefinitely detained the innocent for political reasons has marked a low point in my professional career and I wish to make the record clear on what occurred.”

    I wonder how many other people in politics have had similar things happen to them against their will and now have regrets. Washington must be one sleazy place. How much does he regret the dirty money? At least there are a few with a conscience.
