AP Wire | 07/14/2005 | State Dept. cites Iran brutality reports: "The Iranian government responded Wednesday that Bush should not intervene in the case of the jailed dissident, especially in light of allegations of U.S. human rights violations in Guantanamo Bay and Abu Ghraib prisons.
In the meantime, 33 Iranian political activists asked the United Nations to press for Ganji's release, warning his life was in danger because of his monthlong hunger strike, the official Islamic Republic News Agency reported.
Casey said Ganji was only one of many people thrown into jail in Iran simply for expressing their opinions peacefully. 'There is no excuse for it,' he said. 'And it's not something the United States is going to stop speaking out on.'"
