Bush Screws Up Again

So what else is new? Yet more incompetence by the United States. Some would call this criminal, but no, it seems only the innocent get punished. Impeachment, before it’s too late.

From America's prison for terrorists often held the wrong men by Tom Lasseter:

"He was not an enemy of the government, he was a friend of the government," a senior Afghan intelligence officer told McClatchy. Akhtiar was imprisoned at Guantanamo on the basis of false information that local anti-government insurgents fed to U.S. troops, he said.

An eight-month McClatchy investigation in 11 countries on three continents has found that Akhtiar was one of dozens of men — and, according to several officials, perhaps hundreds — whom the U.S. has wrongfully imprisoned in Afghanistan, Cuba and elsewhere on the basis of flimsy or fabricated evidence, old personal scores or bounty payments.
If you were one of these men would you have any resentment towards the United States?
