A pretty obvious comparison. The Nazis used the Reichstag fire of 1933 (supposedly started by a Communist) to justify a 'war on terror'. They used it as an excuse to establish sweeping emergency powers, open concentration camps, detain people without trial or legal resource, subject them to torture... they used absolutist jargon such as 'you are either with us or against us.' In exactly the same way the Republican administration has exploited September 11th 2001. Rumsfeld is an evil old man. He ordered that the detainees in Guantanamo Bay be subjected to the indignities and terorising that were later used at Abu Grahib. 90 % of the detainees (according to the Red Cross) should not even have been there.
