"Ghosting"

A Washington Post article today sheds some light on the process - that certain administration officials okay-ed - of "disappearing" select prisoners in Abu Ghraib prison.

The Washington Post show that unregistered CIA detainees were brought to Abu Ghraib several times a week in late 2003, and that they were hidden in a special row of cells. Military police soldiers came up with a rough system to keep track of such detainees with single-digit identification numbers, while others were dropped off unnamed, unannounced and unaccounted for.


Trying to imagine the treatment of such unaccounted for prisoners is sure to bring to mind the images of torture and humiliation which have been uncovered in this facility. Treatment which has continually been brushed off as 'a few bad apples'. However, the effort was made nonetheless to keep this prisoners well below the radar - whatever the motives.

According to statements investigators took from soldiers and officers who worked at the prison, a stream of ghost detainees began arriving in September 2003, after military intelligence officers and the CIA came to an arrangement that kept the International Committee of the Red Cross and other humanitarian organizations from knowing the detainees existed.


The administration continues to distance itself from the most basic standards of human dignity in its treatment of POWs. Even promoting the most blatant torture forgivers to higher positions. Lack of accountability is something which the Bush administration seems to pride itself in. It's difficult to imagine serious action to be taken against the top offenders in this (or any) war misconduct.

The sad thing is, this is most likely only the tip of what is assuredly a very big iceberg.

Hi matey

I'm sure it was this blog I was reading a while back where someone was looking for an SEO tool for driving more traffic and get more hits for their website.

Anyway, I was speaking to a techi guy at work who gets to know all the latest stuff and he uses the free Link Referral Program at http://marketingexperts.wordpress.com.

His website on starting a home business amongst other stuff has seen traffic explode since he started using the Link Referral Program - consequently his affiliate sales commissions and business sales went through the roof PLUS his website increased in google ranking which was an added bonus!!

If anyone else has any good ideas for driving more traffic to blogs/websites then please share with your online business blog buddies. Ta ;-)
