Oh, the irony of Abu...

Can someone post a pic of Abu guards threatening prisoners with dogs?<br><br><br><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK START--><a href="http://releases.usnewswire.com/GetRelease.asp?id=72706">releases.usnewswire.com/G...p?id=72706</a><!--EZCODE AUTOLINK END--><br><br>Department of Justice: San Francisco Woman Who Served As Nazi Concentration Camp Guard Is Deported to Germany<br><br>9/19/2006 1:47:00 PM<br><br>WASHINGTON, Sept. 19 /U.S. Newswire/ -- A San Francisco woman has been removed to Germany based on her participation in Nazi- sponsored acts of persecution while serving during World War II as a guard of female prisoners at the infamous Nazi-operated Ravensbruck Concentration Camp in Germany, Assistant Attorney General Alice S. Fisher of the Criminal Division announced today. <br><br>A charging document filed in U.S. immigration court in San Francisco by the Justice Department's Office of Special Investigations (OSI), which investigated the case, and the Department of Homeland Security's Bureau of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) alleges that Elfriede Lina Rinkel, 83, a native and citizen of Germany, served as a guard at Ravensbruck from June 1944 until the camp was abandoned in the closing weeks of the war.<br><br>"Concentration camp guards such as Elfriede Rinkel played a vital role in the Nazi regime's horrific mistreatment of innocent victims," said Assistant Attorney General Fisher. "This case reflects the Government's unwavering commitment to remove Nazi persecutors from this country."<br><br>In a settlement agreement reached with the government, Rinkel admitted that she served as a guard at Ravensbruck, admitted that she was deportable from the United States under a federal law that mandates the removal of aliens who participated in acts of Nazi-sponsored persecution, and agreed to the entry of an immigration court order directing her removal to Germany by Sept. 30. Rinkel returned to Germany earlier this month pursuant to that order. <br><br>When it was established in 1939, Ravensbruck was the only Nazi concentration camp operated exclusively for the internment of female prisoners. <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>The charging document states that while serving at Ravensbruck, Rinkel used a trained attack dog to carry out her guard duties.</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--> At Ravensbruck, SS female guards armed with attack dogs forced malnourished women inmates to march to slave labor sites each day, guarded them while they performed manual labor, and then force-marched them back to the concentration camp, where they were held under notoriously inhumane conditions. The charging document alleges that Rinkel's activities at Ravensbruck assisted the Nazis in persecuting civilians on the basis of their race, religion, national origin or political opinion, and that her removal from the United States is required by federal law. <br><br>Rinkel immigrated to the United States from Germany in 1959. The charging document alleges that she concealed her concentration camp service from U.S. immigration authorities when she applied for her entry visa. Rinkel never applied for U.S. citizenship.<br><br>"Thousands of innocent women were brutalized and murdered at Ravensbruck through the active participation of Elfriede Rinkel and other guards, whose principal function was to prevent prisoners from escaping the abominable conditions inside the camp," said OSI Director Eli M. Rosenbaum. "Her presence in the United States was an affront to surviving Holocaust victims who have made new homes in this country."<br><br>The case is a result of OSI's ongoing efforts to identify, investigate and take legal action against former participants in Nazi persecution who reside in the United States. Since OSI began operations in 1979, it has won cases against 102 individuals who assisted in Nazi persecution. In addition, more than 175 individuals who sought to enter the United States in recent years have been blocked from doing so as a result of OSI's "Watchlist" program, which is enforced in cooperation with the Department of Homeland Security. <br><br> <p></p><i></i>

Any bets that whoever in the Dept of Justice is responsible for this deportation gets sacked? <p></p><i></i>

The dog theme:<br><br>JUNE 2004<br><br>KARPINSKI CLAIMS CURRENT ABU GHRAIB CHIEF SAID PRISONERS ARE LIKE DOGS<br><br>BBC - Brig Gen Janis Karpinski told the BBC she was being made a "convenient scapegoat" for abuse ordered by others. Top US commander for Iraq, Gen Ricardo Sanchez, should be asked what he knew about the abuse, she told BBC Radio 4's On The Ropes program. . .<br><br>Gen Karpinski said military intelligence took over part of the Abu Ghraib jail to "Gitmoize" their interrogations - make them more like what was happening in the US detention camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, which is nicknamed "Gitmo." She said current Iraqi prisons chief Maj Gen Geoffrey Miller - who was in charge at Guantanamo Bay - visited her in Baghdad and said: <!--EZCODE BOLD START--><strong>"At Guantanamo Bay we learned that the prisoners have to earn every single thing that they have."<br><br>"He said they are like dogs and if you allow them to believe at any point that they are more than a dog then you've lost control of them."</strong><!--EZCODE BOLD END--><br>Gen Karpinski repeated that she knew nothing of the humiliation and torture of Iraq prisoners that was going on inside Abu Ghraib - she was made a scapegoat.<br><br> <br> <p></p><i></i>

This is soooo phunny, so coincidental. I just got a call from one of those political survey polls for the state of Iowa. Heehee, the poll survey just had to ask about what my thoughts were on what I found most objectionable about the direction the country was taking. First, let me say that it sounded like one of those push polling surveys, probably put out by Jim Leach, Republican House member. Now, frankly, I knd of like Republican Leach. Just about the only one I do like, sort of, kinda. But there was one question which you could have the poll-taker transcribe you opinion, not just choose ABC or D. Man, did I cut loose on Abu Ghraib and prisoner abuse. It was a LONG ANSWER. Heeheehee. Even phunnier, the above link sound was running in the bakground. How's that for coincidence? I had to leave the room to hear what she was saying. <p></p><i>Edited by: <A HREF=http://p216.ezboard.com/brigorousintuition.showUserPublicProfile?gid=chiggerbit@rigorousintuition>chiggerbit</A> at: 9/19/06 9:10 pm<br></i>
