9/11 families at Guantanamo: Enough about the torture

Seven family members of those killed in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and a survivor of the attacks are observing the hearings of five alleged plotters of the attacks. They criticized the current focus on the alleged torture experienced by the five, reported the Tribune News Service.

‘”Torture is living a life without your loved one,” said Terry Strada’, whose husband Thomas was killed at Cantor Fitzgerald, leaving her the single mother of three — one of the children only 4 days old.

‘”We talk about human rights. They don’t deserve human rights. Because they weren’t human. They were inhumane,” ‘ said Jefferson Crowther, whose 24-year-old son Welles Crowther was killed at Sandler O’Neill.
