The more I read and hear about what’s really going on in Guatanamo Bay, the more I realize that whatever the definition of torture is (pace my previous blog entry), what’s happening at Gitmo isn’t it.
For example, if they were treating the prisoners inhumanely would they be standing on the runway, arguing with their guards, refusing to go home? Another report said the prisoners had gained an average of 9 pounds of weight from all the good food. Others said some of these guys were given more showers in a week than they’d had the previous year.
Is this the Gulag? Is this a concentration camp? The Hanoi Hilton? If the interrogations at Gitmo are torure then we don’t know what torture is anymore.
