I realize that you go onto sourcewatch and wiki to challenge ALL truthful articles about Guantanamo "detainees" (read: prisoners of war - think Omar Khadr - and those who were put in there via the $5,000 reward, something that gets deleted from ALL sources of info).
From the searches I have made, I have noticed that whenever I want to read something about the Center for Constitutional Rights, it has ALL been changed or challenged! So your recent forays into Digg and other places come as no soopreeze to ME.
For myself, my first clue the ante was upped was when someone challenged this blog as a SPAM BLOG!! Such a blatant attempt to have my "security key "lifted" could not go unnoticed. You may, of course, feel very uncomfortable, and often ANGRY and full of rage at what I post, but your soul knows what I say is SO, and free speech is the right of every living being. But I think it's wrong of you to lie to google about me. I am only doing my job as a WRITER.
Yup, you've been watching this blog like hawks for months. I have your IP numbers and addresses!! I know that MURKANS tax dollars are spent surveilling every thing I post here! The Navy, the Air force, the lot are REGULARS! Wow! aren't you guyz just so COOL!
You know what guys, you guys are JUST AS expendable as the rest of us, cause when they are through ripping off everything, despoiling the planet with du, shit chemicals, out go you, too, because as "luck" would have it NO ONE ON THIS PLANET IS PERFECT ENOUGH FOR THE EUGENICS GUYS, and that includes you, too! We're ALL flawed; that's what we all have in common. That's kind of a heavy thought and oversimplified, but think/dwell on that for awhile when not hanging out in a bar with fellow arrogant a**holes or snorting your precious powders and have a right good think on it. You, my potential friend, are EXPENDABLE, too. And that's just a pitch to your superficiality. To your soul, I have an entirely different "argument" if you'll just bear with me for another moment or six (after all you DO get paid to "sit through" all this, I do not.)
There is still time to do the right thing. Even if you DON'T believe in reincarnation, the final judgment or anything else, you can still seeing living out your cruddy little lives cannot be justified as you shut down your hearts, minds and awareness for yet another day.
And let me say this, unequivocally - telling each other our stories, dialogue, discussing, is the real work in this world. Having a hand in perpetrating war and havoc, living only for profit and materialISM, ignoring the needs of other people and the planet really does not "cut it" in the long run.
It's STUNTING YOUR GROWTH.
Wordz and the will of people to have freedom and real bonds with fellow human beings is where it IS at. And you know, the death squads, the disappearances agents, the torturers in Latin America have been largely RUN OUT! Yup, the will was there becuz of the actions taken by their mothers and their children. Love won! against rather heavy odds, I might add.
I AM a torture survivor. What was done to me was total torture - it lasted in intense form for about a half a day with the guns blazing (and why did they not just shoot me then, I have asked myself many, many times since 1994) - but the truth is each and everyday since then I have lived with the most hideous form of PTSD and considered suicide on many, many occasions. To this day, those who did that to me, to my husband and to my children have never been held accountable and perhaps they never will be but they DO know what they did. It nearly drove me insane trying to figure out how they could do such a thing.
But I live to tell the TRUTH, I am open to honesty and truth and I am willing to change myself to be the BEST human being I can be and live without minimization, rationalization, denial or delusion as I am capable.
And so, sir or madam, so must you - if you wish to see the planet survive and live in a world where things make SENSE. Dragging around the reluctance to face truth is a burden no one should carry.
Join the crowd of us MERE human beings while ya still can. While you are still festering from 9/11 wounds, remember this: it was an inside job, employing the talents of agents just like you, handpicked worldwide from Pakistan, Saudia Arabia, Italy, Afghanistan, Canada and all over. Many are not doing so "well" today. Others like Osama have billions paid to them for their efforts. So get over whatever weakness they are exploiting in YOU, whatever fears YOU have, whatever reservations are holding you back and join the team of the living.
All my best,
Wikileaks busts Gitmo propaganda team
JULIAN ASSANGE (investigative editor)
Guantanamo Bay deletes detainee ID numbers, labels Fidel Castro "an admitted transexual" and more.
WASHINGTON--The US detention facility at Guantanamo Bay has been caught conducting covert propaganda attacks on the internet. The attacks, exposed this week in a report by the government transparency group Wikileaks, include deleting detainee ID numbers from Wikipedia last month, the systematic posting of unattributed "self praise" comments on news organization web sites in response to negative press, boosting pro-Guantanamo stories on the internet news site Digg and even modifying Fidel Castro's encyclopedia article to describe the Cuban president as "an admitted transexual".
Shayana Kadidal, Managing Attorney of the Center for Constitutional Rights Guantanamo Global Justice Initiative, said in response to the report:
"The military's efforts to alter the record by vandalizing Wikipedia are of a piece with the amateurism of their other public relations efforts: their ridiculous claims that released detainees who criticize the United States in the media have 'returned to the battlefield,'.

It can be readily observed from the timings of a "traceroute" that packets to the machine in question pass through southcom.mil in Maryland and then into a satellite, as is consistent with US military internet provision to Cuba.

It seems likely that "Joe Forsyth" is a complete fabrication. On other comments often we see "joenavy", but in both cases the language is identical to that used by Richard M. Wolff — Guantanamo "mass communications specialist". In addition, note that a link to this story was "dugg" by "usnavymc1" at digg.com. "usnavymc1" is used frequently, and is the first part of one of Wolff's contact email addresses listed with the navy.

If absurd that many Americans think that those of us here in Guantanamo are
treating the prisoners poorly. We are committed to the safe and humane treatment
of those captured on the battlefield, just as we would want those fighting against
us to be towards us. Visit the JTF Guantanamo website to see what we are really

This is the only comment which does not attempt to hide the Guantanamo Bay affiliation. It is presented here to show the similarities with those comments that are unsigned or mis-attributed.
http://digg.com/ is the internet's most popular user driven news site. A story that is "dugg" (voted up) onto the Digg front page can attract hundreds of thousands of readers.
The digg account "usnavymc1" has posted over 40 Guantanamo Bay "official" propaganda stories posted to Digg. A full record of these and nearly 100 other stories "voted up", can be seen using the link below. The user is almost certainly Guantanamo "mass communications specialist" Richard M. Wolff although he may share the account with other Guantanamo staff. Wolff fits the description account holders description, and uses the username "usnavymc1" -- not used by anyone else on the internet (see the section of this document on Wolff) -- as part of one of his official email addresses. Wolff may share the account with other Guantanamo staff.

Hi all! I am new to the group and in need of some help. I am in the
military, did 9 years active-duty, then for the past 5 years I've
been in the reserve. When I left AD, I got a little lazy and gained a
few pounds, ok more than a few... lol. Anyhow, I've lost most of the
fat I gained before, but I also lost a lot of muscle. I've tried
combinations of weight gain and intense workouts, even some ripped
fuel, I do a good amount of cardio as well. Does the cardio hurt me
from gaining muscle max? Would I be better off just lifting?
I've been in this routine of getting back in shape for about a year
now and I'm looking much better than I did, but I feel I'll never get
back into that really ripped form I used to have. I am 5'6", 165lbs,
34 years old. Of course my age might have something to do with it
since my metabolism might not be as good as it used to be, but I try
to eat healthy and things that digest easily. Should I be eating more
red meat? I don't at the moment at all, but I do take a multivitamin
everyday so I do get all my vitamins.
Any advice would be great! Also, if anyone knows if I should take
something besides ripped fuel to help me gain mass more please let me
know. Also, what more can I do (like in the other post) to get rid of
the little layer of fat over my abs? They're defines pretty good but
can't be seen through that damn little layer of flub.

Well, where do I begin? I guess the present would be the right place. I am currently
working full-time and soon will be starting a new position wih the federal government.
I have completed an A.A.S. degree at Warren County Community College in Washington, N.J. and
was just awared a Bachelor's of Science Degree in Business Management in July of 2006.
I currently am taking MBA Classes and should graduate in April 2008.
I am also in the U.S. Navy Reserve. Even though I live in New Jersey, I am attached to a
command in Norfolk, Va. My administrative reserve office is located in the Bronx.
If you're in the neighborhood and you see a sailor on the street near that area,
it might be me. As of this past year, I am not officially a journalist anymore for the Navy.
My new title is a Mass Communication Specialist encompassing journalism, photography,
graphic arts, web design, public affairs and broadcasting.
