Guantanamo saga continues

One of the stand-out atrocities of the Bush years and his prosecution of war in the Middle East is the legacy of the Guantanamo Bay prison. There is a wealth of material available on the internet about the GITMO prison, extraordinary rendition, prisoner torture, etc.

Over the years, a number of prisoners have been found to be innocent of any crime and released. The full length feature film Taxi to the Darkside is an excellent in-depth look at how America handles their prisoners and the role the Guantanamo Bay military prison has played in what any reasonable person would conclude to be war crimes. 

The following linked article is another chapter in the saga and includes two videos. The article talks about the dozens, if not hundreds of innocents that have been held at the GITMO facility, in an expose made possible by the Wikileaks dump of reams of classified government documents. Presented by al-Jazeera, they also make a point to focus on the case of one man, an al-Jazeera employee who was held for six years before finally being released, having never been charged with any crime. It is claimed they had captured him in order to gain intelligence on the well-respected international al-Jazeera news network.

You can read that article and see those video at this link:


To this day, the Guantanamo Bay military prison is still in operation, holding captive an untold number of innocent people, however dangerous some other prisoners may actually be.
