The star witness in the trial of US troops for prisoner abuse in Iraq and Afghanistan has mysteriously disappeared. Omar al-Farouq would have been the first detainee to testify against an American soldier.

The US regime previously claimed that Omar al-Farouq was a "top al-Qaeda operative" and "one of Osama bin Laden's top lieutenants", but now they claim that he was somehow able to escape. The only evidence of his escape is an anonymous "leak" to the mass media, as usual from an "unnamed" US official.

Three other witnesses are said to have "escaped" at the same time, so the only four people ever to succeed in an "escape" from a Guantanamo-bay-style maximum secitity US military prison all happen to be witnesses who wanted to testify against the US military.

There is sufficient anecdotal evidence here to justify asking the question: is the US military willing to eliminate people who threaten their position in occupied countries? Yet there is no hint of this obvious question in the western media. As previous examples demonstrate, the mass media would not be so restrained if the same incident happened in an enemy state.

Of all of the people to escape from the US militarys black prisons why would it be the ones going to testify against the torture abuse?

You would think they would stick around at least until after they were allowed to speak their piece.

Just another "convenient coincidence". We will probably never know what really happened to these people.

so, 'really knowing' means having your face shoved into the dirt where they're buried? i think we all know what disappearance means, we had that in the USSR, Nazi Germany, various South American dictatorships and so on, they are responsible, if they don't return, they should be presumed dead and their henchmen considered murderers.

Yah Disappearances are fantastic, they are basically the death penalty minus the trial and prisoner upkeep costs
