Candace Gorman, Chicago lawyer representing 2 prisoners held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, discusses the release of al Jazeera cameraman, long-term Guantanamo prisoner Sami al-Hajj, some of the horrific circumstances of his capture, his “crime” of refusing to become an informant, the continued denial of medical treatment to her client Al-Ghizzawi who has been subject to double jeopardy after even the bogus tribunal found that he was not an “enemy combatant,” the refusal of multiple military officers to participate in the persecution of these men and the government numbers which show that 92% of the Gitmo detainees are completely innocent of ties to al Qeada.

  1. According to Dr Bob Bowman, former chief of US Air Force Missile Defense, missile defense is the missing link to a First Strike. Dr Bob Bowman thinks missiles in Poland will be very useful to shoot down any surviving Russian missiles after a First Strike. Therefore the Russians will implement Launch On Warning. The terrible consequences of a mistake will be caused by the PentagonĀ“s drive for a disarming, unanswerable first-strike capability. Dr Bob Bowman agrees that the Pentagon will get disarming first-strike capability by 2011/12. Acc. to former Trident missile engineer Bob Aldridge-www.plrc.org-the US Navy can track and destroy all enemy subs simultaneously. The main danger is Russian Launch On Warning because of US First-Strike Capability. Please read Keir Lieber and Daryl Press, “The Rise of US Nuclear Primacy”, 2006 March/April issue of Foreign Affairs. By 2011/12 the Pentagon will have achieved that the Russians have no choice but Launch On Warning. A First-Strike Capability inevitably leads to Nuclear War, probably by accident due to Russian Launch On Warning which they will implement by 2011/12 because they will have no other means of defense.
