Amnesty International

July 25th, 2013

Army. An FBI official confirmed to Human Rights Watch the participation of CIA and FBI interrogation. The United States Government recognizes its involvement in the jailing of 14,000 prisoners without charge and without the right to a lawyer, most of them in places in the world where torture is common practice. This empty legal is has baptized him with the euphemism of extraordinary rendition, which is part of the Bush doctrine. The obsession with security at any price reverses the presumption of innocence where there is the rule of law. This distrust of people and the system worldview is reflected by a letter from a reader to the public Spanish journal. Each day we have more alleged News repeated the word alleged until the boredom persons accused or suspect until a judge handed down something in the years after, even if there are witnesses to the crime are alleged.

What journalist and writer Rafael Reig responds: persons charged with an offence are not suspected guilty far as I know, the only thing that is presumed is innocence. The type charged with murder is a presumed innocent will be suspicious, maybe you have to prove is the guilt. This extraordinary rendition evokes the abduction in Argentina of nazi leader Adolf Eichmann by agents of the Mossad. He was taken to Israel for his trial and subsequent sentencing to death and execution. Also to the kidnapping in Mexico’s Humberto Alvarez-Machain, accused of murder, and his subsequent trial in United States, although at the end was acquitted by the Supreme Court. Those who defend these practices argue that the end justifies the means. If civil society tolerate it and not wake up, the police state will have letter free to act with impunity. Internet allows access to the reports of organizations such as Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and Reprieve. So when they come for us, yet is someone to protest.
