Rumsfeld, Bush remain unaccountable over torture: activist
Press TV has conducted an interview with Charlie McGrath, founder of Wide Awake News.com, about the revival of a lawsuit against a defense contractor for torturing detainees at Iraq’s Abu Ghraib prison.
The following is an approximate transcript of the interview.
Press TV: Tell us the significance of this; a US federal appeals court has revived this lawsuit. Tell me in your perspective what this could mean?
McGrath: In my perspective…my hope is that District Judge Bruce Lee…will have some latitude to help these victims, you know, these victims of torture that was sponsored by Donald Rumsfeld and the United States.
The hope is that not only will these victims be compensated for their torture that was prosecuted in our names; but that this would be exposed to the American people because I really truly believe that most Americans don’t understand that these things can happen once again – in our name.
The Surprising Vitamin of Long Life
A vitamin hailed as “a miracle cure” decades ago, and later dismissed as “nearly useless” turns out to have remarkable disease-fighting prowess and could even add years to your life, several new and recent studies suggest.
One of the latest findings is that vitamin C could be an inexpensive, natural weapon against cardiovascular disease (CVD)—heart attacks and strokes—the leading killer of Americans.
Not only are researchers now testing a new stent coated with vitamin C instead of drugs to treat clogged heart arteries, but taking vitamin C in supplement form cuts risk for developing cardiovascular disease (CVD) in the first place, according to a new analysis published in the journal Atherosclerosis.
