Closing Gitmo Won't End Bushlag Archipelago
Token gesture is political stunt and a drop in the ocean


Paul Joseph Watson/Prison Planet.com | June 22 2006

Exactly four months ago this website reported the following.

"Developments over the past few days indicate that the Bush administration may be on the verge of announcing the closure of the Guantanamo Bay detention camp. If this happens it will be a token political gesture and the worldwide torture and rendition program will not cease."

Certain quarters of the media and global humanitarian groups are heralding the stand down of George W. Bush after he gave a speech outlining US plans to close down Guantanamo Bay. Here is a list of things closing Gitmo won't end as the post-9/11 mentality Bushlag Archipelago thunders on.

- Closing Gitmo won't end the existence of countless secret CIA prisons in former Soviet gulags in Eastern Europe and the policy of firing anybody who blows the whistle about them.

- Closing Gitmo won't aid the plight of 70-90% of Iraqis who are arrested, hooded, and thrown into prison camps for the crime of not showing their papers at checkpoints.

- Closing Gitmo doesn't answer why the US government has a penchant for torturing innocents while releasing known terrorists.

- Closing Gitmo will not stop an estimated 1000 detainees a month who are being tortured to death in Iraq, according to former UN human rights chief dropped John Pace.

- Closing Gitmo won't bring to justice the architects of the worldwide Copper Green torture policy immediately following the war on Afghanistan.

- Closing Gitmo won't put a stop to the global rendition policy whereby the US government uses European countries as a halfway house before shipping accused terrorists to countries where torture is commonplace.

Closing Gitmo does nothing to offset that fact that, as the London Guardian reported, Afghanistan is "one huge US jail," and "the hub of a global network of detention centres, the frontline in America's 'war on terror', where arrest can be random and allegations of torture commonplace."

- Closing Gitmo won't end the program of armed dawn raids on innocent people smeared as terrorists based on the testimony of retarded government informants and the shoot-to-kill policy adopted by western law enforcement.

- Closing Gitmo won't prevent citizens of European countries being grabbed off the streets by globetrotting CIA kidnapping squads.

- Closing Gitmo won't end the promotion of torture as a virtue so long as it is committed by 'coalition forces' - even so far as presidential advisors condoning crushing the genitals of children to extract information from terrorist suspects.

- Closing Gitmo won't unravel the US government's policy of creating de facto terrorist cells by entrapment and phony allegations that later collapse in court.

- Closing Gitmo won't unravel the British government's policy of creating de facto terrorist cells by entrapment and phony allegations that later collapse in court.

- Closing Gitmo won't unravel the Canadian government's policy of creating de facto terrorist cells by entrapment and phony allegations that later collapse in court.

- Closing Gitmo won't end the suffering of countless Falun Gong practitioners in China, the victims of macabre live organ harvesting procedures, at the hands of a Communist autocracy the Bush administration and the American media has done nothing other than cosy up to.

- Closing Gitmo won't halt contracts given to Halliburton by the US government to build internment camps in America for political dissidents.

Closing Gitmo won't change any of these things.
