There has not been an upsurge of homegrown terrorists in the past year and there have been no copycat bombing attacks. To put this in context, over the same period there have been 14,000 murders in the United States, including 46 murders in Boston.

Many people feared that the Boston Marathon Bombings would lead to more domestic terrorism– but has the threat been overhyped? Read Dan Schanzer and Charles Kurzman’s opinion piece explaining why we’re not in as much danger as we’ve been led to believe.

Boston will not be deterred by the tragedies at the Marathon last year. Instead, the hard working athletes will continue to run, demonstrating that we are stronger than terrorism.

'Exhibit B' - Medical report for Shaker Aamer detailing his physical and psychological abuse suffered at GTMO

priceofliberty:

There was a 17-year-old detainee. They put a gun up his rectum. He was screaming, ‘I’m no woman! I’m no woman!’ I yelled at the guards to stop in English. Then, because I spoke English the soldiers said, ‘He’s a traitor. He speaks perfect English.’ They beat me even harder. A black female soldier stopped them, saying, ‘You’ve had your fun.’

At about 0600, after 20 minutes of not being beaten, they put me in a cage with a blanket. They put me on my face and unshackled me. Then they ran out. They gave me bread. At about 0730 or 0800 they yelled at me to get up. They put my head on the ground, hooded and shackled me and took me to the interrogators tent. I was kept awake for 10 days.

The guards were starting at me. I felt humiliated. Sal talked to me as if I were a human being. Then Sal would say he was going to screw my five- year-old daughter; he was going to do this and that to my daughter sexually; how my daughter would scream and scream. I thought about attacking Sal and getting killed. But I wouldn’t do anything aggressive. Force is the weapon of the coward.

What do our followers think of this horrendous news?
