The Torture of Abdul Hamid al-Ghizzawi

By Leonard Fein

Forward Association, 2007

It is unthinkable that America can remain an international power if it still persist in its violation of international law and common codes of decency, claiming to itself the right to torture people. Cannons of crisis, behind us, before us, volley and thunder, deafen our sensibilities. It is hard to focus on one man unjustly tortured or even on hundreds perhaps unjustly held, cruelly treated. And it is hard to know how much damage Guantanamo does to perceptions of America by others, to our blundering effort to "win the hearts and minds" of people worldwide.
