US indicting Charles Taylor...isn't it ironic..

...don't you think;
Alice Fisher, assistant U.S. attorney general for the Justice Department's criminal division, said the indictment was the first time charges under the torture laws had been brought. Emmanuel faces a potential life prison sentence.

"Crimes such as these will not go unanswered," Fisher said at a news conference in Washington with Miami U.S. Attorney R. Alexander Acosta and Julie L. Myers, head of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement.

"This is a clear message that the United States will not be a safe haven for human rights violators," Myers said
Say what?
The Congress just passed a bill that enshrines both “harsh interrogation” methods and denies habeas corpus for anyone who is accused of “purposefully and materially supporting hostilities against the United States” no matter if that support came in the shape of donating money to a cause only to find out that the cause was a front for “terrorists.” In voting for this bill, the Congress has eviscerated major portions of our Bill of Rights and what it means to be a liberal democracy as envisioned by our founding fathers. With less than a week of debate, they have set the United States on the road to being a banana republic where the rule of law no longer applies.

So why is this bill so dangerous? And what does this portend for our future?

The danger arises from the secret, unaccountable license for brutality.

Yes by all means, let us not be a 'safe haven' for human rights violators.

I don't know if anyone's still updating the blogroll, but as one of last summer's bloggers against torture I thought I'd alert you to the change of url for my blog: The Left End of the Dial v2.0.

Also, note that the posts above this one are spam, and someone might wish to remove those pronto.

Hello. Anyone still here? Just wondered if there had been any headway in fixing my link in the "Bloggers Against Torture" blogroll.

The Left End of the Dial v2.0.

The old version of the blog has been dormant for a while, and I'd really rather have any traffic go to the new place.
