US DEPT. OF DEFENCE DIRECTIVE ALLOWS EXPERIMENTATION ON PRISONERS AT GUANTANAMO
Introduction by H. Candace Gorman
From The Guantanamo Blog | Original Article
The article discusses a little known directive by then deputy defense secretary Wolfowitz allowing for experimentation on some of the prisoners at Guantanamo. One of the many disturbing points about this article is how the Government turned the humane treatment of prisoners as a "privilege" to be afforded only those who were considered "lawful combatants." Of course one of the many ironies is that the Government never could get its terminology consistent so the men at Guantanamo were never found to be "unlawful combatants" but were instead found to be "enemy combatants." I know....picky picky.
Little by little the war crimes are coming to the surface. Wolfowitz has moved up on my list.
