    New Documentary on Torture

    Advertisements
    http://www.showbuzz.cbsnews.com/stor...n3729822.shtml

    this is from a press blurb for the film: note: 93% of all GITMO detainees have been picked up on bounty, and 37 out of 800 of the detainees have been MURDERED. that means for every ONE detainee that was actually captured by US forces, there has been 0.7 that have been MURDERED by US forces. on top of that, another 1.8 per 1 captured by US forces have DIED IN CUSTODY for unknown reasons.


    out of more than 100 deaths in U.S. custody, 37 have been officially declared homicides by the U.S. military itself. Perhaps even more shocking is the fact that only seven percent of Guantanamo detainees were actually apprehend by the U.S. military -- the rest have been turned over by Afghan warlords, Pakistanis, bounty hunters, etc., any of whom may have had agendas having nothing to do with the American war on terror.


    we need to take a good deep stare at ourselves in the mirror. is this the face of the greatest nation on Earth?
