US accused of holding terror suspects on prison ships


www.guardian.co.uk

The United States is operating "floating prisons" to house those arrested in its war on terror, according to human rights lawyers, who claim there has been an attempt to conceal the numbers and whereabouts of detainees.

Details of ships where detainees have been held and sites allegedly being used in countries across the world have been compiled as the debate over detention without trial intensifies on both sides of the Atlantic. The US government was yesterday urged to list the names and whereabouts of all those detained.

I thought Gitmo was the only place they went, now they hold them on ships. Wouldn't surprise me if next they were holding them in containers on sea ports.

Gitmo, black sites, now ships?

Makes you wonder just how many prisoners the US has. Bush is going to hand one hell of a mess over to the next president.

Let's hope no one forgets to tell the next guy that the military are wasting their time with all this.

Otherwise, this is starting to seem reminiscient of certain political imprisionments that we feared so much when faced with the threat of the Soviets.

Don't forget the European secret prisons that "suspects" are flown to. I wouldn't say Gitmo was the major one at all. Used as the media one.

Another view from rawstory.com


The United States has engaged in more than 200 new cases of extraordinary rendition since President Bush vowed to end the practice in 2006 and has operated more than a dozen secretive "floating prisons" aboard military ships at sea, according to a soon-to-be released report from an international human rights organization.
