Terrorverdacht? Für immer hinter Gitter!

--- Die Washington Post enthüllt mal wieder neues aus dem Giftschrank Bushs, des Pentagons und der CIA: es geht um die Möglichkeit, Terrorverdächtige (und so ein Verdacht besteht ja recht leicht) für immer einzukerkern: Administration officials are preparing long-range plans for indefinitely imprisoning suspected terrorists whom they do not want to set free or turn over to courts in the United States or other countries, according to intelligence, defense and diplomatic officials. The Pentagon and the CIA have asked the White House to decide on a more permanent approach for potentially lifetime detentions, including for hundreds of people now in military and CIA custody whom the government does not have enough evidence to charge in courts. The outcome of the review, which also involves the State Department, would also affect those expected to be captured in the course of future counterterrorism operations. "We've been operating in the moment because that's what has been required," said a senior administration official involved in the discussions, who said the current detention system has strained relations between the United States and other countries. "Now we can take a breath. We have the ability and need to look at long-term solutions." One proposal under review is the transfer of large numbers of Afghan, Saudi and Yemeni detainees from the military's Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, detention center into new U.S.-built prisons in their home countries. The prisons would be operated by those countries, but the State Department, where this idea originated, would ask them to abide by recognized human rights standards and would monitor compliance, the senior administration official said. As part of a solution, the Defense Department, which holds 500 prisoners at Guantanamo Bay, plans to ask Congress for $25 million to build a 200-bed prison to hold detainees who are unlikely to ever go through a military tribunal for lack of evidence, according to defense officials. The new prison, dubbed Camp 6, would allow inmates more comfort and freedom than they have now, and would be designed for prisoners the government believes have no more intelligence to share, the officials said. It would be modeled on a U.S. prison and would allow socializing among inmates. Agenturmeldungen zu dem rechtsstaatlich inakzeptablen Vorhaben gibt es auch auf deutsch.

Diese Meldung habe ich gestern schon entdeckt und mir hat dabei auch der Atem gestockt. Die USA scheinen unter Bush die Abspaltung von der gesamten westlichen Welt voranzutreiben, kochen bei jeder Gelegenheit ihr eigenes Süppchen und scheren sich immer offenkundiger einen Dreck um einstmals getroffene internationale Vereinbarungen.
Was der Tsunami für Südostasien ist Bush für die US-Innen- und Außenpolitik.
