David Hicks´ Guantanamo Bay Memoir: “My Journey” Now Out

 

After 5 years in the harsh detainment facility, he pleaded guilty to materially supporting terrorism. He was then sent to Adelaide´s Yatala Prison to serve the remainder of the 7-year jail term.

Hicks will have to surrender all profits from his tell-all book to the Australian Federal Government. He signed an agreement with US authorities when he pleaded guilty in April 2007.

He tells stories of Guantanamo, the place that was yet to become closely associated with photos of naked men stacked on each other, electric shocks and waterboarding. His Memoirs do nothing to hide the terror he experienced.

  Torture???  
 
Try some of these US prisons were your forced to join gangs based on ethnic background, all in the name of the dollar. A real war zone, Guantanamo is all hype.


Whats wrong with being naked? TO me it sounds like a BDSM camp for soldiers and captives.

  well  
 
all i can say is that if you aren´t kidding, look up waterboarding. it´s intensely horrific.

  ALSO  
 
if you are used to relative personal peace day in day out of some stuff can ruin all that thus bringing about a life of terror. It does not matter if you ´deserve´ it or not!

  Ok  
 
I´ve never been to prison, or been tortured by waterboard.

But Us Prisons from what I hear are no better.

And "gitmo" still looks like BDSM club..
Naked, strapped people being shocked and water play.

A lot of the things you hear about US prisons being hardcore gang-controlled hell holes is just hype too. Gangs are cool and the image of them being powerful secret societies that run the prison system right under the guards´ noses is something that sells in the media.

I´m sure US prisons don´t systematically abuse their prisoners humans rights like they did in Gitmo.

And it might look like a BDSM club but that makes it all the more abhorrent when you consider the only ones who wanted to be there were the guards, those involved with Gitmo should be hunted down like the organisers of Concentration camps.
