Guantanamo guards advised to shut the fuck up
USA Today |
"Military and civilian employees at the U.S. prison for suspected terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, were warned recently not to talk with attorneys who represent detainees held there, according to a document prepared by the legal office of the Army... soldiers and interrogators are not required to give defense attorneys statements about the 'personal treatment of detainees' or any 'failure to report actions of others.' It also says that refusing to cooperate with defense attorneys 'will not impact your ... career.' [In other words: Your job is safe as long as you don't squeal.] The warning - titled 'Interaction with Defense Counsel' - has surfaced at a time when the treatment of the nearly 600 detainees at Guantanamo is under scrutiny because of the abuse and sexual humiliation of Iraqis in U.S. custody at the Abu Ghraib prison in Baghdad. Maj. Gen. Geoffrey Miller, former commander at Guantanamo, went to Iraq last year to share interrogation techniques used in Cuba." [Big surprise.]
