Cageprisoners is a human rights organization existing solely “to raise awareness of the plight of the prisoners at Guantanamo Bay and other detainees held as part of the ‘War on Terror.’” It was launched during the Muslim holy month of Ramadan October 2003 by individual Muslim volunteers concerned with seeing “a return to the respect of fundamental norms which transcend religion, societies and political theories.” The vision of ‘Cageprisoners’ is “that abuse of individuals and the demonization of societies be eradicated completely and that respect for human rights is unequivocally promoted globally.”
“The legitimization of extra-judicial killing is a disturbing development in

“In pursuit of pre-meditated murders, the collateral damage (the killing of the obviously innocent) has been extensive.” Though a false notion [and though the CIA currently holds the monopoly over drone kills], “the claim that such murders can be executed with electronic precision lends incentive to other nations to develop drones to perpetrate their own surgical assassinations.”
“Since the 9/11 attacks, the policy logistics of murder have been dramatically transformed.
