Wow. Really, wow. Enduring that for 48hrs looks horrific enough, never mind 7 years! Imagine enduring that day in day out? I can't even begin to imagine.
One question that's never been answered for me on Gitmo from those that thinks it's neccessary is this - if these people deserve to be in there, if they have really commited a terrorist act, why have they not been charged?
We can debate the methods, the justification, the rights and wrongs of it till the cows come home, but the fundamental question is, if they are guilty then why have charges not been brought against them?
The next question is, if these people can be held and tortured for years without charge or proof of guilt, what is to stop them doing it to you?
These are 2 questions that no Gitmo supporter has ever been able to answer. Hopefully some supports of legal torture might come onto this thread for a try after watching the video.

While I don't approve of some of the methods in Gitmo used to break people I do believe they need to either be convicted and tried or released. Taxpayers dollars are paying for these guys to live there and its not that I'm coldhearted but the law system takes to damn long and justice isn't what it should be. Case in point, a person is convicted for trying to commit murder and they get life imprisonment. What the hell good is that going to do if they are going to die in prison anyways? Save taxpayers money and kill them, instead of spending thousands and thousands of dollars on someone thats is going to die there. I'm talking about the repete violent ones, not the ones with one charge or lack of evidence. These monsters shouldn't get to wait on death row, they should be killed as soon as possible. And although it sounds horrible I am also all for an eye for an eye. Murder would be lower if they had to expeirence the same fate they put their victim through. Like a person that kills their child coldheartly by suffocation. They should die that way too. Why should they get a painless death, when they tortured a person? Anyways sorry about the rant but it seems lawlessness has got to stop and we need to get the people that deserver to be there in there and the ones that don't out.
Remember its just my opinion and hopefully no offense is taken.

I'm sorry, I just had to laugh.
The words from your comment which must be highlighted are 'volunteers' and re-creation or better yet, 'simulation'.
What are you trying to prove with this fake, staged, liberal interpretation of events at Gitmo?
How do the people who made these video's really know what goes on in Gitmo? Where they there? Answer: NO!
Are they getting their info from the prisoners? If so, then it's even more worthless because what do you expect prisoners to say.
Double down thumbs for obvious liberal propaganda SIMULATION which does not have a solid base in reality or fact.
