"Power concedes nothing without a demand. It never did, and it never will. Find out just what people will submit to, and you have found out the exact amount of injustice and wrong which will be imposed upon them..." Frederick Douglass

America's 'Detainee 001' – The Persecution of John Walker Lindh

Amen! I wrote something about this ten or so years ago (of the same title save "Detainee 001") and couldn't get it published anywhere. He is America's number one political prisoner. Of what is he guilty? He was captured and tortured by American forces, and dumped in a prison from which he escaped after it was abandoned by NATO. He joined the Taliban, and it stood in the way of an oil pipeline, that's his crime.
