New claims of inmate abuse surface

|
Some of the claimed abuses date from this year, despite President Barack Obama's pledge to overhaul prison practices.

"When Obama was running for president he talked a very good story about what he is going to do, but he actually has done very little of that. We see the escalation of the war in Afghanistan, we see the secret prisons continuing, the government using what they call the 'security privilege' to keep it from being challenged in court on many of these prison-related issues." - former CIA officer Philip Giraldi

"Dissent in the age of Obama"

Recently, the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI) raided the homes of at least eight anti-war/social justice activists here in the US.

I happen to be a prominent anti-war activist myself, and have joked that I am a "little hurt" that I was not raided and perhaps I should try harder. Even though, we have the urge to try and be light-hearted in this time of an increasing police state, with civil liberties on the retreat, it really isn't funny considering that the activists could face some serious charges stemming from these raids...

Cindy Sheehan is the mother of Specialist Casey A. Sheehan who was killed in Iraq on April 4, 2004. Since then, she has been a tireless activist for peace and human rights; has published five books, has her own Internet radio show: Cindy Sheehan's Soapbox, and has been nominated in the past for the Noble Peace Prize. Cindy lives in Oakland, Ca and loves to spend time with her three grandbabies in her spare time.
