    The Wide Awakes

    Stop The ACLU

    The ACLU is up to their anti-US, anti-defense, anti-security litigation again. This time they are suing the CIA based on "secret prisons" and the allegations of one man.

    A US civil rights groups says it is taking the CIA to court to stop the transportation of terror suspects to countries outside US legal authority.

    The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) says the intelligence agency has broken both US and international law.

    It is acting for a man allegedly flown to a secret CIA prison in Afghanistan.

    US Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice says she'll comment on recent reports of alleged CIA prisons abroad before starting a visit to Europe on Monday.

    Ms Rice has said she will provide an answer to a EU letter expressing concern over reports last month alleging the US intelligence agency was using secret jails - particularly in eastern Europe.

    'Extraordinary rendition'

    "The lawsuit will charge that CIA officials at the highest level violated US and universal human rights laws when they authorised agents to abduct an innocent man, detain him in incommunicado, beat him, drug and transport him to a secret CIA prison in Afghanistan," the ACLU said in a news release.

    First off, I don't know how the ACLU got details of this particular man's case, and I'm not advocating torture if it happened, however, that's not what they're arguing. They are instead fighting the use of secret prisons across the globe. What if the ACLU had tried this in WW2? In World War Two, we had prisons camps across the country, and in some cases overseas, and they were secret. It's a necessary action, not only for our safety, but for the safety of the prisoners. If we release the location, terrorists and enemies could attempt to assault it, or, angry Americans could attempt an attack. In the wake of 9/11, there was an extraordinary amount of anger, and I could easily imagine groups of disgruntled Americans attacking holding camps of Al-Qaeda members.

    So what's the ACLU's argument? It's not about torture, but rather about the fact that they are having a hard time defending the terrorists because they cannot locate them or communicate with them. The ACLU refused funds from groups that said their money can't be used to defend terrorism. That's what this is about. The CIA is doing this for the safety of our troops, the safety of the average American, and even the safety of the prisoners. The ACLU wants to assault that safety.
