Intel programmer locked in club fed for donating money to a charity three years ago that is presumed to have terrorist links

coderman: "A friend and former colleague at Intel, Steven McGeady, is championing Hawash's case. McGeady, a former vice president at the chipmaker who hired Hawash as a programmer in 1992, was a high-profile witness in the Microsoft antitrust trial."
coderman: "People say this doesn't happen in this country," McGeady said, "but one of my neighbors has been disappeared. It's not what he might have done that matters to me -- they disappeared him. They need to question him and let him go, or charge him. It's like Alice in Wonderland meets Franz Kafka."

coderman: oh yeah, a _lot_ better. like the warm, protective embrace of UNCLE SAM is protecting me from the evil terrorists

US using cluster bombs which are almost as bad as anti-personnel mines, apparently

GabeW: In terms of killing civilians
A_Young: "United States is dipping into its stockpiles of .. the worst cluster bomb in existence, the BLU-97 .. [which] has two fuses -- one set to detonate on impact, and a second to detonate if an unexploded bomb is disturbed .. more than 50 million bomblets were dropped during the 1991 Persian Gulf War"
A_Young: ".. ordnance experts in Kuwait, which was heavily bombed after Iraq claimed the country as its own in 1991, were finding roughly 200 cluster bombs per month just last year"
A_Young: ".. Countries generally rely on private contractors to scoop up mines and dud bombs in war zones. Because of the nature of modern warfare, business is booming."
