It’s an outrage that the Bush administration is predicted to escape justice for violations of the conduct of war, the Geneva Conventions, and children affected by conflict.
The Raw Story reports:
The Pentagon admitted that 12 juveniles — those under the age of 18 at the time their alleged crimes took place — have been held at Guantanamo Bay (as opposed to the figure of eight that was submitted to the UN in May). But a RAW STORY count, drawn from the Pentagon’s own records, reveals that the total number of juveniles held at Guantanamo is at least 22 — nearly double the official Pentagon figure.
Now, it has been leaked that President-Elect Obama is considering someone neck-deep in torture doctrine and implementation to head the CIA. Read it and weep. I hope this is one of those cases where leakers are just running off at the mouth.
