Waging war on journalists who lie. Exposing the truth about Jack Idema, whose story must be told.

As far as I know they’re still there, and as far as I know, the situation hasn’t changed in spite of numerous visits from Parliament and the fact that we keep anticipating that any day now there is going to be a press conference where these men will be exhonerated in front of the world, and will be told that a terrible mistake was made.

After all. When you’re tortured for the sake of detaining terrorists connected with Gulbideen Hekmatyar who is on the America’s most wanted list-and even the Karzai government is putting some distance between themselves and the new Parliament…and the fact that the guys were declared innoncent in a second trial…you just can’t keep relying on the first Taliban trial which ignored all the rules of Afghan law and say they ‘had a fair trial’. That is…unless you’re against the military and our fighting the war on terror and believe like so many of the leftist professors at our elitist universities that “there is no war on terror”.

In which case you guys should seriously get a reality check.

Please consider the Americans at Pulacharke prison at this moment, and think about it: It’s been over a year since they’ve been declared completely innocent by the Afghan appeals court, yet they’re still being held. The question is…why? If the Afghans admit that no torture occurred (which they did), there was no torture chamber (which they did) that they entered the country legally (which they did), then why has the American government turned its back on them?

Put aside the question as to whether or not Jack and his men are active-duty soldiers, because that’s not the question. The question is not whether he had an alleged “fraud conviction” (and that’s not what it was!) The question is–if you were abroad working in a country that signed agreements to honor basic human rights of people working there in order to receive financial assistance–and then you’re falsely arresting of something and thrown in prison for it–wouldn’t you expect your countrymen to take up arms, or pens, or telephones and make sure that the people who are pulling the levers of power would at least be AWARE of this situation?

Wouldn’t you agree–if more people were aware of this story something would have been done about it besides trying to sweep it under the rug?

Wouldn’t your friends and family–if you were arrested under circumstances like these in a foreign country–demand that something be done about it?

Well it’s time the American people did so on behalf of the Americans being held at Pulacharke. Certainly Karzai with all of the languages he speaks understands English!

It’s time to turn up the heat on all our elected representatives, because this absolutely should not stand. How on earth can someone remain in detention–remain in prison–after they’ve been declared innocent by the country where they’re being held? This whole affair is so convoluted it’s beyond description, and it defies REASON!

So what can we do? Well, anyone reading this with their own blog can sign up for the weekly Free Jack Idema Blogburst by emailing Cao or Rottweiler Puppy for details. I’d urge everyone to do this, as we’re still terribly short on takers. If you want to know more about the story, Cao’s Blog has a large section devoted to Jack Idema. There’s also a timeline here, and, of course, a huge amount of information is available over at SuperPatriots, without whose work none of us would have learned about Jack’s story.
