Save Krypto the Super-Dog!

Save Krypto the Super-Dog!

The Carpetbagger Report:
"It's as clear a through-the-looking-glass argument as the Bush administration has ever offered. Khan was one of 14 high-value detainees transferred in September from a secret CIA "black" prison to Guantanamo Bay. A lawyer with the Center for Constitutional Rights, which represents many detainees at Guantanamo, is seeking emergency access to him, but the administration is denying access — arguing that the tortured detainee might talk about the abusive interrogation techniques, and thereby divulge a national security secret."

"In other words, by torturing someone, administration officials are inadvertently sharing state secrets (i.e., the "alternative" interrogation methods themselves). Therefore, the Bush gang believes they have the power to torture suspects and the power to stop detainees from talking about it, even after the suspect has been released."

"Joseph Margulies, a Northwestern University law professor who has represented several detainees at Guantanamo, said the prisoners "can't even say what our government did to these guys to elicit the statements that are the basis for them being held. Kafka-esque doesn't do it justice. This is ‘Alice in Wonderland.'"
