Guantanamo Bay: The Story Newsweek Didn't Want You to Hear

The weblog INDC Journal has a very interesting story, with plenty of links, called "TALES OF HORROR FROM THE AMERICAN GULAG".

The story documents conditions at the American-run prison camp at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, and describes how many prisoners felt about their detention there.

Here are some interesting quotes from the prisoners:

“Americans are very kind people,” one English-challenged detainee said in the March 4 paper. “If people say there is mistreatment in Cuba with the detainees, those type speaking are wrong, they treat us like a Muslim not a detainee.”

“I’m in good health and have good facilities of eating, drinking, living, and playing,” remarked another. “The food is good, the bedrooms are clean and the health care is very good.”

I was directed to this story by Instapundit and Indepundit.

Here's a very interesting story from the weblog of Austin Bay about Koran manhandling and destruction at the Guantanamo Bay prison camp:
