Kansas disbars lawyer involved in Guantanamo case | McClatchy Tribune News Service | The Bellingham Herald

… concerned about the legal and physical treatment of prisoners, Diaz printed out a list in early 2005 of all the detainees and anonymously mailed them to a civil rights lawyer in New York. That lawyer turned them over to the judge handling litigation in the cases of detainees. After an investigation Diaz was charged with disclosing classified material. In 2007, he was convicted at a court-martial, dismissed from the Navy and sentenced to six months in prison.

Newspaper editors know that the headline, opening paragraph and closing paragraph are often the only parts of articles that get read … and too many of today’s editors abuse that knowledge.

The headline, opening paragraph, closing paragraph of the article above damn Diaz for selfishness, instead of commending his compassion and bravery.

GITMO is a clusterfuck of cowardice and inhumanity and arrogance and immorality. So are our military tribunals, and our state and federal courts. So is the mainstream media.

Thank you, Matthew Diaz, for trying to help.

Had our military tribunal, courts and media treated you fairly, Adnan Farhan Abdul Latif might be alive and well and living in Yemen.

  1. Following the now long-standing tradition of GITMO “suicides,” the information on Adnan Farhan Abdul Latif’s “suicide” is getting murkier.

    I hope that the German citizenry objects to Latif’s body being transported to their country so vociferously that their government demands that the poor man’s remains be turned over to them for an open and transparent autopsy. The findings may lend clarity to all the other GITMO “suicides.”
