George Orwell would be proud

Newspeak, doublethink, the art of spin, Washington-style:

Guantanamo suicides "an act of asymmetric warfare waged against us": BBC News Guantanamo suicides a "good PR move to draw attention": BBC News

Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and a few other NGOs, have designated June Torture Awareness Month. We've created a blogroll you can join if you're interested. You can find it here. The idea is that everyone is linked to from the blogroll, and in exchange, you discuss torture (as you already do), and link to the Torture Awareness site to help support the NGOs.

There's a lot of bloggers concerned about human rights abuse in the War on Terror. If we coordinate, we can show our support and help Amnesty and HRW make Torture Awareness Month a success.
