Africa ... albino child

WITH their milky white skin, wispy hair and haunting, pale eyes, they are called “the living ghosts” by locals.

And the vulnerable albinos of Tanzania in East Africa have more than insults to fear.

They are being hunted down and hacked to death to satisfy a growing demand for their body parts and blood to use in black magic. (more…)

(NaturalNews) The Bush administration has committed war crimes in Afghanistan, Iraq and Guantanamo Bay in its practice of torturing prisoners, according to the conclusions of a medical examination conducted by the organization Physicians for Human Rights.

As Halloween approaches, we’re constantly reminded of ghouls, witches and zombies. But the worst creatures our imaginations can conjure aren’t fictional. After all, evil is an inherent part of human nature. Think about that strange old man who lives down the hall from you. You keep telling yourself he’s just a kooky lost soul in need of a friend, when in reality he probably just ate a cat last night… and you’re next. Nor are maniacal, murderous impulses reserved purely for the Hitlers and bin Ladens of the world.

True evil seems to emerge when human desire is mixed with power, insanity and wanton disregard of social mores.

The living are way, way scarier then anything that bumps in the night. And here are seven truly terrifying, often overlooked figures from history that make Michael Myers look like he’s merely in need of some behavioral therapy. But if you try use any of these nutjobs as inspiration for a costume idea, don’t say we didn’t warn you about the offended stares and vitriolic epithets. (more…)

It involved sleep deprivation, the withholding of medical treatment, stress positions, long-time standing, and beating. Sound familiar?

According to the Bush administration’s definition of torture, McCain was therefore not tortured. (more…)
