Guantanamo Detainees Have No Case Files

From WaPo via Donklephant:  

President Obama’s plans to expeditiously determine the fates of about 245 terrorism suspects held at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and quickly close the military prison there were set back last week when incoming legal and national security officials — barred until the inauguration from examining classified material on the detainees — discovered that there were no comprehensive case files on many of them.

Obama’s First War Crime

CIA controlled drones bombed Pakistan killing 22.

Just three days after Barack Hussein Obama became the 44th American president, five missiles hit compounds in South and North Waziristan on Friday afternoon, killing at least 22 people, according to Pakistani intelligence officials.

This is supposed to be connected to the CIA’s search for Al Qaeda.

CIA Predator drones have carried out 28 missile attacks in Pakistan since last summer, killing at least 132 people. Pakistani officials said that as many as 100 of them were civilians. [Seceretary of State] Clinton also vowed to triple non-military aid to Pakistan.

The Pakistani Foreign Ministry wishes the bombings to cease. We keep bombing a sovereign country. What’s that phrase for killing civilians. Tip of my tongue.

90 Days

I chop up my year into four quarters but instead of going off the traditional fiscal year, I mark the beginning and end with a birthday. Yesterday was January 23rd meaning I have 90 days until I turn 34. I have lots of things I’d like to accomplish by April 23rd.

The past few weeks have been very challenging for reasons I can’t readily discuss. Not suprisingly, I’ve got a terrible cold and am now up at 6am on a Saturday waiting for my antihistamines, decongestants and pain killers to kick in. It is that awful dead zone type cold where you don’t feel absolutely terrible but as the insomnia starts to mount you feel worse and worse and you sleep with your mouth open so you’re always dried out. I think Ron is getting the cold as well now.

Working a lot these days, taking the laptop home to put in a few extra hours each night.

My first video debuted to applause at our Friday meeting and the blog readers seem to be enjoying it.

The cats are restless this morning. Ron is tossing and turning in bed as he gets a bit more sick.

I’m hoping some gym time in a few hours will help move things around in the internals.

“We Tortured Mohammed al-Qahtani”

Well thank fucking God. With seven days to go! I mean why wait. Why not just wait until the hour before the swearing in?`

“We tortured [Mohammed al-]Qahtani,” said Susan J. Crawford, in her first interview since being named convening authority of military commissions by Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates in February 2007. “His treatment met the legal definition of torture. And that’s why I did not refer the case” for prosecution.

I’m Not Really a Nazi

I’m showing off Google Analytics and I show my personal blog which happens to be getting traffic for the keyword phrase ‘fucking jews’. Of course I’ve got co-worker last name Goldberg sitting next to me. We start giggling and at least I can show him the hits are coming from my post about Mel Gibson’s DUI. Even better I’m #2 for the search. Teasing will never end on this one. ‘Hey did you hear Wibbels is a homo nazi?’
