Bush and Cheney are torturers.
Now they want to make us the same.
They have brought our values to the same level as the beheaders.
Fourteen Guantanamo Bay prison detainees are due to face their first hearings before US military panels, without legal representation and with reporters barred from the proceedings.
The 14 detainees - described by the US as "high-value" suspects - were transferred to the US navy base in Cuba in September after years held in secret CIA prisons.
On Friday, the suspects will go before "combatant status review" panels of three military officers who will decide whether they should continue to be held and tortured as "enemy combatants" at Guantanamo.
No defence lawyers or reporters will be present, adding to concerns over the equity of the process.
