George W. Bush, Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld covered up that hundreds of innocent men were sent to the Guantánamo Bay prison camp because they feared that releasing them would harm the push for war in Iraq and the broader War on Terror, according to a new document obtained by The Times.

Torture works: Key Bush figures say waterboarding helped in capture of bin Laden … and that Obama should share the credit (Daily Mail):

Senior members of the Bush administration spoke out on Sunday to praise waterboarding and claim their share of the credit for bin Laden’s capture.

Former Vice President Dick Cheney said waterboarding ‘probably’ helped in tracking down Bin Laden.

Mr Cheney told Fox News Sunday: ‘It was a good programme. It was legal programme. It was not torture. ‘I would strongly recommend we continue it.’

Speaking on CBS, former Defence Secretary Donald Rumsfeld called it ‘a mistake’ to rule out waterboarding, saying: ‘It’s clear that those techniques that the CIA used worked.’

The key to finding Bin Laden was locating his courier.

Captured terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammed gave the courier’s nickname in 2003 after being waterboarded 183 times.

Mohammed never gave up the real name, even under so-called ‘enhanced interrogation.’

Opponents of torture believe normal questioning would have been more effective on Mohammed.

Mr Rumsfeld said he thought Mr Obama was right to opt for a SEALs raid, but added: ‘I would have preferred a lot less discussion out of the White House about intelligence.’

President Bush declined an invitation to visit Ground Zero with Mr Obama because he thought he wasn’t sharing credit for the raid, the New York Daily News reports.

Former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice re-emphasised on CNN by stressing that the operation, which she described as a ‘victory across presidencies’ took years to set up.

She said: ‘You don’t just stumble upon Osama Bin Laden. It takes a lot of work to get there. These leads developed quite a long time ago.’

Former Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff added on NBC: ‘Both presidents deserve a lot of credit for maturing the apparatus over 10 years.’

The Republicans spoke out as National security adviser Tom Donilon said the cache of intelligence seized at Osama Bin Laden’s squalid Pakistan hideaway is the size of a small college library, the largest amount ever of intelligence gathered from any single terrorist.

He said that Al Qaeda is not strategically defeated yet. But the death of Bin Laden and the information found in his lair are an important milestone in the struggle to take down the terorrist organisation.

He also slammed Bin Laden’s deputy Ayman Al Zawahiri as not anywhere the leader that Bin Laden was.

He also said that the U.S. has not seen any evidence that Pakistan knew Bin Laden was hiding in the compound just 800 yards from the country’s military academy.

What Depleted Uranium Does to Children in Iraq: Japanese Journalist

Depleted Uranium Shells Worse Than Nuclear Weapons:

Inhaled or ingested DU particles are highly toxic, and DU has been classified as an illegal weapon of mass destruction by the United Nations.
“More than ten times the amount of radiation released during atmospheric testing [of nuclear bombs] has been released from DU weaponry since 1991,” said Leuren Moret, a U.S. nuclear scientist. “The genetic future of the Iraqi people, for the most part, is destroyed. The environment now is completely radioactive.”
“Because DU has a half-life of 4.5 billion years, the Middle East will, for all practical purposes, be radioactive forever.”
