The Gulag Archipelago, Redux?

Did anyone ever read The Gulag Archipelago, the book written by Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn about the network of prison camps in the old Soviet Union into which the KGB would put dissidents and anyone else opposed to the Soviet Union?

That was a really, really scary book. What is really scary though is that it looks like we are creating our own Gulag Archipelago, only this one is not inside the United States, it is spread all over the world.

We now have our own network of concentration camps scattered in U.S. bases all around the world, islands of inhumanity beyond the reach of American or international law where we can torture prisoners and no one is the wiser.

Wake up, people! Our country is in peril of losing its soul because of the crimes being committed in our names. This is a little bit more imporant that who Paris Hilton is "servicing" who will be the next American Idol.

This is beyond horrible. It's a war crime and the people responsible must and will be punished.
