La strage nascosta

no name | "Ho sentito io l'ordine di fare attenzione perché veniva usato il fosforo bianco su Fallujah . Nel gergo militare viene chiamato Willy Pete. Il fosforo brucia i corpi, addirittura li scioglie".
È questa la tremenda testimonianza di Jeff Englehart, veterano della guerra in Iraq. "Ho visto i corpi bruciati di donne e bambini- ha aggiunto l'ex militare statunitense-il fosforo esplode e forma una nuvola, chi si trova nel raggio di 150 metri è spacciato".
Testimoni hanno visto "una pioggia di sostanze incendiarie di vario colore che, quando colpivano, bruciavano le persone e anche quelli che non erano colpiti avevano difficoltà a respirare", racconta Mohamad Tareq al-Deraji, direttore del centro studi per i diritti umani di Fallujah. more...  0 Comments

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
