Guantanamo Bay for American Children

-- by Thomas Leavitt

The other day, I saw a bumper sticker that has stuck with me: "NIXON IS NO LONGER THE WORST PRESIDENT EVER". God damn, how true that is...

Check out this interview of Alternet reporter John Gorenfeld by Mark Levine over at Radio Inside Scoop, entitled, appropriately, This Bush Crony Has Blood on His Hands!

The "crony" is Melvin Sembler, former Bush-appointed ambassador to Italy, drug policy advisor, and campaign donor. The blood on Melvin's hands is that of thousands of tortured and abused children, participants in the pseudo-scientific "STRAIGHT" drug "rehabilitation" program he headed (shut down in 1993 by state regulators and lawsuits). Read John Gorenfeld's Alternet article, Ambassador de Sade, for more information. Also, check out the comments following the Radio Inside Scoop articles, and search on Google for STRAIGHT and "humble pants" (make sure you haven't eaten anything recently). Then go hug your children.

A civilized society would render this man a pariah - ours named a $30 million dollar public building in Italy after him!

No, "Pericles", you only believe what your right-wing masters tell you to. Anything that conflicts with their official talking points has to be dismissed as lacking credibility.

Somebody really needs to do sociological research on what's going on in this country about both addicts and unwanted children. Both function as the lepers of today's society. I have a friend who's writing a book right now about yet another "treatment" facility and the sadistic, power-hungry monster who founded it. These are the perfect victims to exploit. Society despises them and has no idea what to do with them.
