Witnesses Were Held Illegally (Kidnapping by US Government)

Another charge to be laid on George W. Bush and his White House crime family. Time to start thinking of your own "exit" strategy, Bush. An "escape" strategy IOW.... :D

Report: Witnesses Were Held Illegally
Many Jailed After 9/11 Never Testified

The federal government held 70 men as potential grand jury witnesses in terrorism investigations after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks, but nearly half were never called to testify, according to a new study by two advocacy groups.

The report, released yesterday by Human Rights Watch and the American Civil Liberties Union, concluded that the government's use of 'material witness' warrants in the months after the attacks was excessive and frequently unlawful because many of the detainees were never questioned by a grand jury or were denied access to attorneys for extended periods of time. Most were never charged with a crime."
