September 9, 2014 – A few weeks ago, investigative journalist and host of RT’s Breaking the Set Abby Martin ventured to Cuba to report on the conditions of and suffering within the prison camp at Guantanamo Bay. Her in-depth investigation appeared as a two-part series on BTS, detailing how the United States took control of Guantanamo Bay and transformed a once beautiful place into a haven for brutal, systematic torture of its prisoners.
From the article:
The oft repeated lie that these men are the “worst of the worst” has clouded the reality that the vast majority are completely innocent, and were simply swept up in a dragnet in Afghanistan. 78 have already been deemed innocent and cleared for release, yet pure political theater keeps them imprisoned.
