Guantánamo. Abu Ghraib. Bagram.
Provided by but out of the United States of America. Out of the purview of civil or human rights. Beyond benelovence, humanity and the dignity of men by far. A country that is proud of being the first true democracy -a nation with liberty and justice for all- adopted the USA PATRIOT ACT Thursday, October 25, 2001 and legalized the taking of every single right one has as soon as there is -founded or not- the suspicion of this very person being involved in terrorism.
This suspicion doesn't have to be a true one. It doesn't have to be reasonable. And most of all there doesn't need to be proof. The Attorney General's word is plenty enough. Innocent people are locked up all over the world. Beaten, humiliated, tortured and killed by the advocates of democracy who casually forget their ideals, their aim, the justice they are supposed to stand for.
Their victims disappear. They stay unregistered and nobody ever knows what happened to them - maybe they left their families due to a lack of loyalty, fortitude or sense of responsibility? They do not have the right of getting a fair trial, a lawyer or anything else than suffering. Their lifes are stolen from them. Only very few will return.
And if they do they are no longer who they used to be.
I came to notice that Gibbs is threatening suspects several times to bring them to Guantánamo if they do not cooperate and in one episode he even confesses that he was not pretending. Usually I like to watch this show but I can't help of being disgusted by those scenes. NCIS is politically biased and flattened all the time -not only concerning those camps but many other subjects as well- but there comes a point where it is hard to find tolerance for the inaccuracy and the generalization that are presented.
I don't think I have to remark that I don't own NCIS.
Rated T for critical discussion of political torture but no graphic descriptions.
Reviews are hightly appreciated. Please give me a chance!
