DAHR JAMAIL: Afghanistan war resister Travis Bishop has been held largely â€œincommunicadoâ€ in the Northwest Joint Regional Correctional Facility at Fort Lewis, Washington. Bishop, who is being held by the military as a â€œprisoner of conscience,â€ according to Amnesty International, was transported to Fort Lewis on September 9 to serve a 12-month sentence in the Regional Correctional Facility. He had refused orders to deploy to Afghanistan based on his religious beliefs, and had filed for Conscientious Objector (CO) status.
