Odds & Ends

  • New information comes to light on the role of psychologists in U.S. interrogations.
  • Yemen gets educated about Guantánamo.
  • Omar Khadr, detained by the U.S. at the age of 15, is losing hope.
  • Presidential candidate, John Edwards, calls for the closure of Guantánamo and and end to "war on terror" rhetoric.
    The war on terror is a slogan designed only for politics, not a strategy to make America safe .... It's a bumper sticker, not a plan. It has damaged our alliances and weakened our standing in the world. As a political frame, it's been used to justify everything from the Iraq War to Guantanamo to illegal spying on the American people.
