Legal Scholar Compares Gitmo Court to Stalinist Show Trials

Vatic Note: Hmm, remember who orchestrated and conducted the Russian Revolution and financed it!!! International Jewry or better known as Khazars, NOT real Jews, Rothschild, more specificially.. Lets also remember who is running Homeland gestapo, Not the US rather SPLC and ADL and guess which country has fine tuned the art of torture??? You guessed it, Israel and its dual Israeli citizens that run our White house (32 of them), our Pentagon, number unknown but the head accountant was a dual Israeli when the 2.7 trillion dollars went missing, and dual Israeli citizens run our intel services PAYING THE ENEMY TO HARM, WOUND, AND KILL OUR SOLDIERS, and add to all that how they control the STAFF for all our congressmen. In the past congress brought their own staff with them to Washington from those who were part of their campaigns and now the bureaucrats determine who the staff will be with an inordinate number being of the Dual Israeli persuasion as evidenced by the new Teabagger rep from Colorado who has a Dual Israeli citizen holding down one of the district offices and who knows how many in his DC office. So it is any wonder that our Gitmo Court resembles Israel's Russian Stalinist tactics and processes???

Legal Scholar Compares Gitmo Court to Stalinist Show Trials
April 17, 2011 posted by Sherwood Ross

This below is obscene. This is NOT America!
The future trials planned for prisoners in Guantanamo Bay detention camp will be “Stalinist show trials” as their preliminary proceedings “have already proven them to be Travesties of Justice,” a distinguished international law authority warns.

“Even worse yet,” says Francis Boyle, professor at the University of Illinois, Champaign, the “fully-functioning Stalinist Gitmo Kangaroo Courts will quickly become conveyor-belts of death for alleged and already tortured terrorist suspects along the lines of the Texas execution chamber operated by George Bush Jr. when he was the ‘governor’ of that state and tortured to death 152 victims by means of lethal injection.”   (VN:  Once the state becomes a legitimate murderer, it changes the culture to one of more inhumane nature and progresses downward from there.  That is when we lose our power and the state begins to gain more of it as we give it up to them and this pict above is the result, as many of these men, the Bush admin people admitted were guilty of nothing.....WHICH IS WHY THEY CHOSE TO MAKE THIS PROCESS LEGAL, to avoid accountability for malicious prosecution of clearly innocent men and women)

Saying the Gitmo proceedings are grievously deficient, Boyle asserted “they constitute war crimes under the Laws of War, the Four Geneva Conventions of 1949, and even the U.S. Army’s own Field Manual 27-10, the Laws of Land Warfare (1956.)”   (VN:  Zionists don't follow US or international laws,  have we not figured that out yet?  They reject the civilized community of nations.  They are the equivalent of untutored children of about 5 who want something and simply take it,  beat someone up for it, or lie to get it.)

Under the 1949 Geneva Conventions, Boyle said, “executing persons detained as a result of armed conflict without a fair trial before a regularly constituted court constitutes a grave war crime” and the Stalinist-type show trials would do just that, says Boyle. He predicted the Guantanamo Bay prison will become Americas first-ever Nazi-style death camp.

Boyle, who has represented a number of military personnel who refused to participate in illegal U.S. wars in the Middle East, said the Obama administration is continuing the second Bush administration’s “hideous atrocities perpetrated against human rights, international law, civil rights, civil liberties, the U.S. Constitution, and America’s Bill of Rights.”

The law professor went on to charge that the Obama government has not applied the Uniform Code of Military Justice to the Guantanamo courts despite a U.S. Supreme Court ruling.

The Pentagon’s “Kangaroo Courts System on Guantanamo…(has) been soundly condemned by every rights organization and every human rights official and leader in the entire world as well as by the United State Supreme Court itself in Hamdan v. Rumsfeld,” Boyle said.

Boyle told Anti-War News Service that “it would also be perfectly lawful under the Geneva Conventions for the Obama administration to transfer the Gitmo prisoners to a neutral third state party to the Geneva Conventions for criminal trials consistent with the Geneva Conventions requirements for criminal trials.”

Boyle goes on to say some of the prisoners could be tried by the International Criminal Court, “but only for alleged offenses that took place after the ICC was established in 2002.” This perfectly lawful alternative, he said, would not apply to the alleged 9/11 conspirators but “it could and should be applied to other Gitmo prisoners who qualify for ICC prosecution by reason of time of their alleged offenses.”

Boyle said the Obama administration has ruled out alternative prosecutions because “they know the only way they can convict these individuals and sentence them to death is by means of the Gitmo Stalinist/Kangaroo Courts.”

Henry King Jr., who was a prosecutor at the Nuremberg Trials at the end of World War Two, has argued that the type of tribunals at Guantanamo Bay “violates the Nuremberg principles” and run counter to “the spirit of the Geneva Conventions of 1949,” Wikipedia noted.

The Guantanamo Bay detention camp was set up in 2002 initially to house prisoners taken by the U.S. in Afghanistan.

Boyle is the author of “Protesting Power: War, Resistance and Law (Rowman & Littlefield Inc.), a book for lawyers to use in military courtmartials.
