US concentration camps

A report is now circulating that the US has over two-dozen secret concentration camps. It's probably safe to assume that there are numerous Abu Ghraibs among them. The assumption is that these camps house "terrorists" but it would be interesting to know who the inmates really are. My guess is that the US military and government forces are simply picking up anyone anywhere who is perceived as a major obstacles to their aims. Whether or not you disagree with my assumption, I guess we will never know since these camps are in fact secret. Evidently, in our great "democracy," decisions about who gets detained and the rules governing their detainment are not decisions that WE need to make as a people. WE are to simply keep our fucking eyes down and fucking mouths shut while our august leaders make such decisions for us.
