Sin embargo, dudamos, y así lo hacemos público, que la persona más adecuada para vehiculizar esta denuncia sea el juez Baltasar Garzón, quien fue presentado a sí mismo como una autoridad en materia de perseguir a torturadores.
25-04-2007 21:46Plans for Al-Adhamiyah confirm that the US occupation and its puppets in Iraq can build nothing but open-air prisons. It will fail
