Batan: Hiding the Dark Side of Mar Del Plata

David Roknich |

Families of the Magdalena prison victims were held back by police.

A one line comment in Argentina Indymedia says Fernando Catz and Roger Sampedro have been sent to Batan: a place with a reputation as bad as any prison in Argentina. All the prisons are crowded, and the media, even the BBC has speculated the reason is a "crime wave" precipated by economic collapse.
This is false. The facts indicate otherwise. It is for this reason former president Menen is hiding in Chile right now.
A CHILEAN judge yesterday threw out Argentine judges’ second request to extradite former president Carlos Menem for questioning about allegations that $60 million was embezzled from funds to be used to build two prisons.

BOOK ON CIA's SECRET JAILS: "Operation Hotel California" by Guido Olimpio

Clayton Hallmark | The first book-length expose of CIA kidnappings and prisons -- two of the greatest evils in the Bush government, and the world -- by the Italian investigative journalist Guido Olimpio is here, and it's new and as current as todays news stories about secret jails the CIA runs! The book is a must-read for anyone wanting to know about the CIA's practice of "rendition": kidnapping people and transporting them to places like Egypt for torture. It's an extremely controversial practice, a threat to America's security and character, and a sweat-provoking threat to potential victims and an insult to the sovereignty of countries like Italy and Sweden. Read the book, and your reactions will range from cold sweat to boiling mad. more...  0 Comments

David Roknich |
According to FBI Crime Statistics, in 2003 the United States witnessed 93,233 cases of rape. Virtually 63.2 in every 100,000 women fell victims. The statistics also showed that every two minutes one woman was sexually assaulted and every six minutes one woman was raped.

The Bush Administration has sought to address Human Rights in the same way that it has addressed global warming.The first step is to remove the data from the government website.

At the end of this article are links where you can retrieve and archive sections of the US State Department website that may soon disappear.
By congressional mandate, the US State Department publishes human rights records of the nations of the world that we recognize as sovereign states. This practice has ended with the departure of Colin Powell in the wake of the US sponsored coup in Haiti. This quote from the US website should shock you,even if the quote above failed:

The State Department web site below is a permanent electronic archive of information released prior to January 20, 2001. Please see for material released since President George W. Bush took office on that date. This site is not updated so external links may no longer function.
US Department of State

The whole world is watching, and continues to document the degradation of human rights that distinguishes the Bush administration. more...  0 Comments
