Freedom marches on

July 15, 2008

A 16 year-old ‘terrorist’ (he may have thrown a grenade that killed an American soldier) is questioned in this, the first video release from Guantanamo Bay. Link

I wonder what valuable security information he’s given up.

I am also reminded of a certain small room in this.

“They all know it is there, all the people of Omelas. Some of them have come to see it, others are content merely to know it is there. They all know that it has to be there. Some of them understand why, and some do not, but they all understand that their happiness, the beauty of their city, the tenderness of their friendships, the health of their children, the wisdom of their scholars, the skill of their makers, even the abundance of their harvest and the kindly weathers of their skies, depend wholly on this child’s abominable misery.”
