Abu Ghraib

/ 15 May 2004

I was just visiting a blog I really like, Bodyandsoul, to see if it was up and running again. (The author took some time off for family emergencies). It is and it isn’t (meaning: she’s posted an urgent message, but otherwise it’s still on hiatus). Anyway, while there, I was reading some of her older posts again and was vividly reminded that people have been raising concerns about what’s been happening at Abu Ghraib for a long time. They have also been raising concerns (as have I) about what’s been happening at Guantanamo. Let’s remember that this is not an isolated outrage, but part of an extensive policy and we need to organize to make it stop NOW.
