    Gitmo inmate: My treatment shames American flag [W:508,759]

    I recently came across this article of Samir Naji's 13 year incarceration at Gitmo. Obviously, this is a pretty convienent time for him to tell the tales of his cruel and unusual punishment. Which made me think; isn't that exactly what's being clamed here? Cruel and unusual punishment on United States territory. I've heard from my professor that an obvious consequence of closing Gitmo would be that if we brought these inmates back to the United States we would have to give them due-process. Well...I may be mistaken, but last time I checked, Guantanamo Bay is United states territory. I found it interesting how this man's story was written. Check it out if you wish to.

    Really? This is torture:

    Each session begins with shouting, to wake me up. Then they hit me on the face and the back. I am so desperate for sleep, my head is swimming. There are photographs of faces stuck all around the walls of this room. They demand that I identify the individuals, but I can barely focus to see if I might know them. The shouting and the insults get louder, and then they nod to a man in the corner. He injects me twice in the arm with some unknown substance. It's the last thing I know.
    The freezing cold cell. The cell door opens. This time the guards enter, making awful honking noises, like wild animals.

    I tried to refuse to eat the little food they bring me, in protest at all this. The interrogator laughs at me, but then turns angry; he swears loudly, and pours an army meal pack over my head. They tell the man in the corner to start feeding me intravenously. He inserts the tube in two different places on my arm and makes it bleed.

    Closing Guantanamo: Who's left and what's in the way

    The freezing cold cell. The cell door opens. This time the guards push me on the floor and take turns trampling over my back.
    Now it's the pornography room. Awful pictures everywhere. There is one with a man and a donkey. I'm stripped naked and have my beard shaved, in a gratuitous insult to my religion. I'm shown pornographic pictures of women. I'm told to make the noises of different animals, and when I refuse, they just hit me. It ends with them pouring cold water all over me.

    Hours later in my cell, I am discovered, nearly frozen. The doctor tells them to bring me urgently to the clinic, where I am given a blanket and treatment. Over the next hours, they observe me as I warm up. They are just waiting for the moment that they can sign off on my return to interrogation.
    What kind of psychopath reads that and detracts... "only pornography"????

    Guantanamo is leased from Cuba, ergo not US Territory. You're in Criminal Justice so you must know that no evidence obtained through torture is admissable in US Courts. As an example, if they tried KSM, a genuine scumbag, in a Stateside Court all evidence would be thrown out as fruit of a tainted tree because he was waterboarded 83 times or more. So he is tried by a military tribunal and he'll definitely be found guilty. Now, Khaled Sheik Mohammed is a genuine piece of crap, but does the USA represent the justice it so proudly declares in the Pledge of Allegiance, "with liberty and justice for all," or does it represent kangaroo Courts. You are in a good position to make an informed decision.

    I don't recall directly naming you. Are you upset by that, though?

    We've heard this crap from ones who were released and returned to their terrorist ways.

    I'm not stupid. You quoted my post and posted that. I don't post to people who post wholly ignorant, rude and out of line posts, as you just did. Don't post to me again.

    What's ignorant?

    1) Reading that a person was injected with an unknown substance; kept in a small, cold cell without any clothing to keep warm; deprived of sleep; denied due process; slapped; force fed; interrogated for hours; subjected to odd pornography; forcibly shaved; stepped on; hit; pushed to the point of hypothermia; etc and then saying "pornography is torture now?"
    2) Reading the above and wondering if that person is sane?

    You're right, I'm out of line. Make it a great one. It will be a pleasure never having to talk to you again.
