35,000 in Secret Prisons
I'm at the Center for American Progress, listening to Sid Blumenthal and Glenn Greenwald talk about the Imperial Presidency, and one thing is important enough for me to want to live blog. Sid says that Wilkerson, Powell's old chief of staff, believes that the correct number of victims in secret Bush prisons is 35,000, only %5 of which "may" have to do with terrorism. More than twice what I thought, and hardly any to do with the "war on terror."
Wake up America, it's getting closer.
