In 2003 some 72% of Americans fully supported the Abandoning of the Missions and those Sent to Accomplish so extremely Quickly after 9/11!!

At least some 95%, if not more as less then 1% serve them, not only still support the, just below, total lack of Sacrifice, they ran from any and all Accountability and left everything still on the table to be continually used if the political/military want was still in play in future executive/legislative wants!!

Analyzing Torture

Professor Visits Military Trial to Analyze Torture

November 24, 2010 - UCSB sociology associate professor Lisa Hajjar was present at the Guantánamo Bay last month for the trial of a former child soldier.

As part of an agreement with the prosecution, Canadian-born Omar Khadr pled guilty to killing American Special Forces Sgt. Christopher Speer in 2002. That year, at the age of 15, Khadr was imprisoned in Guantánamo for war crimes, where he has served as the detention center’s youngest inmate ever since. Hajjar observed Khadr’s trial for her research on legal responses to American torture.

Khadr’s case will be reviewed again next year to determine whether he, the only citizen of a western country currently serving there, can fulfill the remainder of his sentence in a Canadian facility.

Aside from using questionable interrogation techniques, Hajjar said the American government has also redefined military law to suit its needs.

“The U.S. reinterpreted the laws of war for Omar Khadr,” Hajjar said. “He’s the only person the U.S. has charged with a ‘hot war’ violation — like killing a soldier in the course of battle — which has never before been a war crime.” {read rest}
