Guantanamo Suicides in Focus

The Department of Defence Records released to the ACLU by the government through the Freedom of Information Act are very enlightening, and due to over 100,000 documents being released detailing the alleged torture and abuse of detainees, the ACLU has created a search page for the documents. And Secretary Rumsfeld along with three other defendants continue to argue they are immune from a lawsuit, filed by the ACLU and Human Rights First, that holds them accountable for policies which resulted in the abuse. An amicus curiae has been filed by concerned retired military officers and military law and history scholars as well as the plaintiff's opposition to defendant's motion to dismiss. IMHO, accountability is key in forcing the truth from their lips. It's difficult to hide in a glass house!
