Indefinite Detention at Carswell Air Force Base

“Commanding Officer Refuses Attorney Visits Despite Letter From Attorney General Mukasey Ordering Him to do So”

Some things are truly unforgivable in a democracy.

A bill moving through Congress, authorizing the military to imprison Americans indefinitely, without a trial or hearing, ranks right at the top of that list.

I know—I lived through it on the Patriot Act.

When Congress decided to squelch the truth about the CIA’s advance warnings about 9/11 and the existence of a comprehensive peace option with Iraq, as the CIA’s chief Asset covering Iraq, I became an overnight threat.

To protect their cover-up scheme, I got locked in federal prison inside Carswell Air Force Base, while the Justice Department battled to detain me “indefinitely” up to 10 years, without a hearing or guilty plea.

Worst yet, they demanded the right to forcibly drug me with Haldol, Ativan and Prozac, in a violent effort to chemically lobotomize the truth about 9/11 and Iraqi Pre-War Intelligence.

Critically, because my legal case was controlled by civilian Courts, my Defense had a forum to fight back. The Judge was an independent arbiter to hear my grievances. And that made all the difference.

If this law on military detentions had been active, my situation would have been hopeless. The Patriot Act was bad enough.

Mercifully, Chief Justice Michael B. Mukasey is a preeminent legal scholar who recognized the greater impact of my case.

And now… the rest of the story. …..
