Gulag of our time?

Ok, calling the prison pit at Gitmo a "gulag" is a little harsh, but let's not lose sight of the fact that Gitmo isn't living up to American values:

* More than 500 detainees being held without charges
* No lawyers
* "Secret" evidence has been used
* As of January 2004, not one of the detainees has had the legality of their detention reviewed.

Gitmo makes a mockery of the Constitiuon, and the basic rights of man, two of the very things this bogus "war on terror" are supposed to be protecting.
