From a report issued April 1st by Seton Hall Law School:
"SETON HALL LAW STUDENTS REVEAL THAT GENERALS KNEW GUANTÁNAMO DETAINEES WERE TORTURED
Newark, NJ - Today Seton Hall Law delivered a report establishing that military officials at the highest levels were aware of the abusive interrogation techniques employed at the detention camp at Guantánamo Bay (GTMO), and misled Congress during testimony.
"Five generals were either complicit in the abusive interrogation techniques or were central figures in their cover-up. They concealed these practices from Congress, to which they are ultimately accountable. They undermined our democracy, and undercut America's claim to the moral high ground in the fight against terror."
From the Uniform Code of Military Justice- Article 133—Conduct unbecoming an officer and gentleman
"Conduct violative of this article is action or behavior in an official capacity which, in dishonoring or disgracing the person as an officer, seriously compromises the officer’s character as a gentleman, or action or behavior in an unofficial or private capacity which, in dishonoring or disgracing the officer personally, seriously compromises the person’s standing as an officer. There are certain moral attributes common to the ideal officer and the perfect gentleman, a lack of which is indicated by acts of dishonesty...... lawlessness, injustice, or cruelty.
(3) Examples of offenses. Instances of violation of this article include knowingly making a false official statement....."
If these charges can in any way be substatiated, it should be your responsibility to see that the officers involved are immediately subject to court martial and, at the least, dishonorable discharge from the military. I do not believe I need to even begin to argue about the grossly dishonest and criminal behavior in which they have participated, and the damage that this has caused to our country.
Let's see some sort of justice in America.
