9/11, Guantanamo and the Failures of US Corporate Media

The “Worst of the Worst”?

9/11, Guantanamo and the Failures of US Corporate Media

Monday 12 September 2011 | by: Andy Worthington, The FAIR Blog | Op-Ed

In the wake of the September 11 attacks, George W. Bush deliberately discarded domestic and international laws, creating an experimental facility at Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. There prisoners would be deprived of the protections of the Constitution and the Geneva Conventions, held without rights as “unlawful enemy combatants” in a world-wide program of extraordinary rendition, secret prisons and torture. Corporate media largely failed to hold the government responsible for this authoritarian response.

From the beginning, the corporate media generally belittled those who raised concerns about the abuses at Guantánamo. Chris Matthews on MSNBC’s Hardball (1/17/02) told a guest from Human Rights Watch who had criticized the open-air cages of Camp X-Ray: “Back when I was a kid, I used to go down there and sleep out in places like the Virgin Islands overnight, and I loved it. I slept in tents. I thought it was great. And you’re making it sound like harsh conditions.”

FAIR noted early on (Extra!, 3–4/02) how little criticism U.S. media allowed of the Bush administration’s “enemy combatants” designation, contrasting that with international media’s coverage of critics like the UN’s Mary Robinson and the Red Cross’s Darcy Christen (e.g., Deutsche Presse- Agentur, 1/16/02; CBC-TV, 1/16/02). For the Washington Post editorial page (1/25/02), however, such detractors were just “America-bashers in the European press and human rights community.”

White House, US media stonewall on Guantanamo

White House, US media stonewall on Guantanamo

The response of the American media to the Guantanamo documents is a combination of silence and deliberate diversion.

27 April 2011

The thousands of pages of documents on US prisoners at the Guantanamo Bay detention camp, released by WikiLeaks Sunday night, demonstrate the lawless character of the US government, both under George W. Bush and Barack Obama. Kidnapping, torture, illegal imprisonment, subornation of perjury, defiance of international law—these are only a few of the crimes of which the top officials of the US government are demonstrably guilty.

Then secretary of defense Donald Rumsfeld branded the Guantanamo detainees the “worst of the worst,” telling the American public that the prisoners were all hard-core terrorists, many of them linked to the 9/11 attacks in New York City and Washington. The WikiLeaks documents demonstrate that the statements of Rumsfeld, Cheney and other top Bush aides were deliberate and conscious lies.

The vast majority of the 800 Guantanamo prisoners were innocent men swept up randomly on the battlefield in Afghanistan or seized by allied intelligence agencies, particularly in Pakistan, where anyone of Arab or Afghan descent was a potential cash bonanza for corrupt police officials seeking to collect American bounties. More than 100 suffered from mental illness when they were seized. Others were driven into that state by years of isolation and abuse, without any hope of release or legal recourse.

Lies, Damn Lies, And Misreporting About Gitmo Detainees

By Stephen Lendman |  4-27-11

Post-9/11, The New York Times became the lead misreporting source about Guantanamo detainees, largely characterizing them as dangerous terrorists threatening US security.
 
For example, on July 25, 2007, (like its many other reports) William Glaberson headlined, “New US study calls Guantanamo captives dangerous,” saying:
 
A new Pentagon study “argues that large numbers of detainees were a direct threat to United States forces, including Al Qaeda fighters, terrorism-training camp veterans and men who had experience with explosives, sniper rifles and rocket-propelled grenades.”

Are Evangelical Christians Warmongers?

By Chuck Baldwin

September 17, 2011 Information Clearing House—  I’ve been an evangelical Christian since I was a child. I’ve been in the Gospel ministry all of my adult life. I attended two evangelical Christian colleges, received honorary degrees from two others, and taught and preached in several others. I’ve attended many of the largest evangelical pastors’ gatherings and have been privileged to speak at Christian gatherings–large and small–all over America. I have been part of the inner workings of evangelical ministry for nearly 40 years. I think I learned a thing or two about evangelical/fundamentalist Christianity in America. And I’m here to tell you: I don’t like what I see happening these days!

AN AFGHAN human rights organisation has accused the United States army of committing war crimes in Afghanistan.

Afghanistan Human Rights Organisation (AHRO) said on Tuesday that, according to their own investigations, civilians are killed in most operations conducted by US forces.

AHRO expressed strong concern about the death of innocent Afghans during military operations and urged those responsible for the killings to face trial.

“According to our investigations, 98% of civilian casualties caused by the coalition forces in Afghanistan are intentional,” the head of the AHRO, Lal Gul, said.

“The actions of the coalition forces, especially the American forces, are not only against the human rights laws, but are considered war crimes. Therefore, these forces have committed war crimes in Afghanistan,” he said.

Israel violates UNSC resolutions: UNIFIL

Fri Sep 16, 2011 12:43PM GMT


The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL) has accused Israel of regularly violating Security Council resolutions, Press TV has learnt.

Milos Strugar, UNIFIL’s political director, said on Friday that the Israeli army violates Lebanon’s sovereignty and territorial integrity on an almost daily basis which is against the UNSC Resolution 1701.

UN Security Council Resolution 1701, which brokered a ceasefire in the war Israel launched against Lebanon in 2006, calls on Tel Aviv to respect Beirut’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.

War Crime: Dutch state found liable for 1947 massacre of 431 men and boys in Java

War Crime: Dutch state found liable for 1947 massacre of 431 men and boys in Java

PETER CLUSKEY in The Hague

SIXTY-FOUR years after it happened, the Dutch state has been found liable for the deaths of 431 men and boys in a massacre in the Javanese village of Rawagede in 1947 – during a notorious “police action” by colonial troops following Indonesia’s declaration of independence two years earlier.

The long-awaited and deeply embarrassing ruling by a court in The Hague comes just months after the Netherlands was also found liable to pay compensation to relatives of some victims of the Srebrenica massacre in 1995 because Dutch UN peacekeepers failed to protect them.

The Rawagede decision opens the way for similar claims in relation to hundreds of other “actions” by the Dutch before they recognised Indonesian independence in 1949 – particularly thousands of executions ordered by Special Forces captain Raymond Westerling, known as The Turk, during a counter-insurgency campaign in 1946 and 1947.
