    True indeed, the U.S. has kids locked up in interrogation camps – CounterSpin Central (http://counterspin.blogspot.com/2003_04_20_counterspin_archive.html#200181540) has a nice little article on children imprisioned at Camp X-Ray that makes note of a couple of other U.S. allies with similiar policies. Do you suppose they are all really terrorists? Maybe they admitted it? I imagine kids can’t hold up well against the tactics used there that were so recently condemned by HRW.

    An American General named “Geoffrey”?
    I don’t think so.

    Yeah, they’re kids. Like gangleader kids. These aren’t toddlers we are talking about here. How is a sixteen-year-old terrorist a child? Maybe they should be set free with a lolly and a stern admonishment.

    13-15 years old.
    Not that I expect you to understand why it’s immoral to toss young teens into a damned POW camp, without any contact with the outside world. I don’t give a crap if they’re gangleaders or bin Laden’s kids — what the hell gives us the right to do this?
    And don’t use the anti-terrorism/9-11 angle, as those are the strawmen of the administration.
