Exclusive interview with a GITMO guard
The Talking Dog interviews former military police officer Terry Holdbrooks, Jr., who served as a prison guard at the Guantanamo Bay detention center between 2003 and 2004.
Holdbrooks says he and his fellow military police got a lot of propaganda, including a visit to Ground Zero before they shipped out, but not much guard training before they were dispatched to guard detainees billed as too dangerous to be contained within the U.S. legal system:
These detainees were supposedly so dangerous that they couldn't be housed at Fort Leavenworth or any other US Supermax facility. Yet the military felt comfortable entrusting them to military police officers who had never worked as prison guards before.
Kinda of makes you wonder whether the military believed its rhetoric about the terrible dangers these detainees would pose if they were ever allowed within the U.S. legal system.
