Wed, 12/17/2008

This past week has seen developments in several Civil Liberty issues, including the on-air admission of Vice President Cheney to the authorization of torture in an interview with the ABC news. His admission has led to even mainstream media asking if Cheney is a War Criminial. An ACLU press release repudiated Cheney and the Bush administration's torture policy and encourages individuals to sign a petition to close Guantanamo.

In other torture news the US Supreme Court issued a rulingmoving forward an important case charging Donald Rumsfeld and Generals in the chain of command with responisbility for their detention and torture in US custody at Guantanamo. In a pre-trial hearing the case of Omar Khadr took a step forward as attorneys for Khadr revealed their intention to put on the witness stand a soldier whose testimony casts further doubt on the governments case.
