Descent Into Madness As United States Creates Secret Tribunals, Pentagon Says Torture Is Not Illegal, Austria Leader Calls Bush A ‘War Criminal’

By: Sorcha Faal, and as reported to her Russian Subscribers

To a Nation that once carried aloft the torch of freedom, for all the world to see, the United States current descent into total madness seems to know no bounds as their once world-admired system of justice now has become more similar to the dreaded Gestapo courts of the German Nazis than one expected of a free nation, and as we can see evidenced as reported by the Boston Globe News Service in their article titled "Secrecy in court shuts out defense: Lawyers barred in terrorism cases", and which says:

"Witnesses testified under assumed names, the public was barred from the courtroom, and part of the hearing was held in the judge's chambers, with defense lawyers shut out. ``I don't know what took place back there," grumbled Michael E. Deutsch, chief defense attorney for Muhammad Salah, a Chicago man charged with laundering hundreds of thousands of dollars to pay for murders, bombings, and other acts of terrorism by the Palestinian militant group Hamas.

Court secrecy is getting tighter across the nation as the government wages war on terrorism, lawyers say. In Maryland, a federal judge last month dismissed a lawsuit filed by a German man, Khaled al-Masri, who claimed to have been illegally detained and tortured in overseas prisons run by the CIA. After receiving a secret written CIA briefing, the judge ruled that the civil trial would expose state secrets.

The New York Civil Liberties Union is asking an appeals court to order a federal judge in Albany to unseal his decision refusing to throw out charges against alleged money launderers Yassin Aref and Mohammed Hossain. They say they may have been targets of a warrantless wiretap. The judge's decision came two hours after the government submitted a secret court document.

In Chicago, attorneys for Sami Latchin, a man accused of serving as a ``sleeper agent" in the United States for Saddam Hussein's regime, have asked a federal judge whether the National Security Agency eavesdropped on his telephone conversations. Prosecutors say a representative of the Justice Department in Washington will answer the question -- but only in the judge's chambers with defense attorneys not allowed.

Such secret procedures, once rare in American courts, have become more common since the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks. Prosecutors say they need secrecy to protect undercover agents, informants, and witnesses from reprisals and to keep critical information pipelines from being shut down. But defense attorneys say the right of defendants to confront their accusers, guaranteed by the Sixth Amendment to the Constitution, is being worn away under the guise of national security."

Not just to copying the dreaded secret court system of the German Nazis are these Americans content to doing only, but to also becoming like the Gestapo in their treatment of Prisoners of War, and as we can read as reported by Australia’s The Advertiser News Service in their article titled "Torture admission", and which says:

"AMERICAN special operations soldiers kept some Iraqi detainees chained in a room with a diet of bread and water for as long as 17 days, a US military report, made public yesterday under a court order, says. The report by Army Brigadier General Richard Formica – dated November 8, 2004, but withheld by the Pentagon until now – examined in the wake of the Abu Ghraib prisoner abuse scandal the treatment of detainees in Iraq by US special operations troops.

The heavily edited report was turned over by the US Government to the American Civil Liberties Union under court order as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. It also described detainees being kept in very small mobiles – including one who was naked "because he continually urinated on himself and his clothes" – and being exposed to loud music to prevent them communicating and sleeping.

ACLU lawyer Amrit Singh said: "The Government's own documents demonstrate that the abuse of detainees in Iraq, Guantanamo Bay and Afghanistan was widespread and systemic. "It shows that special operations task forces were repeatedly involved in detainee abuse incidents and they continued to escape scrutiny."

The report described special operations troops, at a temporary holding facility in April 2004, keeping detainees in a room on a chain, with a diet chiefly of bread and water, for up to 17 days. But it concluded this diet was not intended as punishment and that, for short periods, eating just bread and water "is sufficient to maintain good health and prevent the onset of nutritional deficiencies".

"In my judgment, if true as alleged in the case of the one detainee, 17 days with only bread and water is too long," the report stated, but said he "appeared in good health". The report cited a case in which detainees were kept at a special operations team's temporary holding facility in small cells – measuring 51cm by 1.2m by 1.22m – for up to seven days, with at least one detainee kept naked. It found that the cells fell short of minimum standards for detainee quarters, called the removal of clothing unacceptable and said a week in such a cell was too long."

To the American people themselves, however, about their continued descent into madness, their seems to be no awareness on their part on what they have become, or in how feared the world is becoming about them, and as we can see evidenced by the Washington Post News Service in their article titled "World sees US in Iraq bigger danger than Iran: poll", and which says:

"As Washington campaigns to highlight the threat it sees from Tehran, the good news for the United States in a Pew Research Center poll of 17,000 people in 15 countries is that publics, particularly in the West, are worrying more about Iran. The bad news is people worldwide think the U.S. presence in Iraq is an even bigger threat and support in most countries for President George W. Bush's war on terrorism is either flat or falling.

And after some signs anti-Americanism had been abating, in part because of goodwill generated by U.S. aid for victims of a late-2004 tsunami in Asia, favorable opinions of the United States have since fallen back in most countries. Widespread concern over U.S. detainee treatment in Iraq and places such as Guantanamo, is a key drag on America's overall image, according to the survey.

Bush himself received the lowest marks for international leadership compared with his counterparts in Britain, Germany, France and Russia, and confidence in him has slipped in most countries -- to as low as three percent in Turkey."

To such concern about the United States have Europeans become that for the first time one of their top politicians has launched an assault against the American Military Leader Bush, and as we can read as reported by Australia’s Sydney Morning Herald News Service in their article titled "Bush is a war criminal: Austria's Haider", and which says:

"Austrian right-wing populist Joerg Haider called US President George W Bush a war criminal, days before Austria's government hosts Bush and European leaders in Vienna. Haider, whose group is part of Austrian Chancellor Wolfgang Schuessel's government coalition, said Bush's meeting with his European peers on Wednesday was pointless as he did not expect the US president to pay attention to what Europe had to tell him.

"He is a war criminal. He brought about the war against Iraq deliberately, with lies and falsehoods," Haider said in an interview with Austrian daily newspaper Die Presse. "The Iraqi population is suffering terribly. Bush took the risk of an enormous number of victims," said Haider."

To the American people of today, and who like the Germany people living under the Nazi Régime of their Military Leader, it would be instructive for them to remember the words of Adolph Hitler, and who said:

"When an opponent declares, "I will not come over to your side," I calmly say, "Your child belongs to us already... What are you? You will pass on. Your descendants, however, now stand in the new camp. In a short time they will know nothing else but this new community."

And how fittingly true those words are today as applied to the American people, who no longer have rights over their children, rights over their past, rights over freedom….and in the days to come, no rights over their very lives.
