Yes, all scary photos. Particularly the photo of the strawberries and lemons, chilling stuff.

The American prison system is merely an excuse for private companies to use slave labour, there is no excuse, or reason to treat non citizens as less human than citizens. Yes, I know the UK has a less than spotless record in this matter too, but it is no excuse.

Looks better than prisons that house american convicts here in the US. Pretty good treatment for people that torture, behead, light people on fire, stone to death, and drag their prisoners through the streets. Ah the religion of peace.

The design of the facility on the inside is no different than most facilities in the United States. Actually looks alot cleaner than most too.

I'm guessing the conditions are much much better than the terrorists afford their prisoners.

I work in a state prison. I agree with Crakrjak. Looks pretty good to me.

Would you rather stay at Guantanamo Bay or one of these fine prisons:

This looks better than most state penitentiaries in the US, Especially the food. Also most prisons here don't use padded restraints.

A whole lot better than a dusty hole in the floor that you would get if captured by the detainees.

Plus the death rate is a lot higher.

Holy crap? Check out the prisons in the u.s., this is about the same, maybe cleaner.

Guantanamo Bay, Cuba is the only place you can be sure there are no Cubans.

How many people here have had a trial?

@madduck: Wiki says: 779 prisoners entered, 169 (or 167) remain. None have completed their trials. 8 have died (6 by suicide).

>Obama "suspended" the trials which were underway in Jan 2009. Years of work? Down the drain.
>In 2011 Obama ordered that the inmates could NOT be transfered to the US mainland OR other countries, effectively keeping them there forever.

Nice eh! How's the "Nobel Peace Prize" hanging?

It looks cleaner than most American prison's. I'd be interested to know statistics regarding violence; Inmate on inmate, inmate on guard, guard on inmate.
That would be interesting, seeing as most American prisons are incredibly violent and chock full of illicit drugs.

Padded cuffs, a library with books in a variety of languages, regional cuisine (even the Hague Hilton doesn't have), a medical ward, security fences, and some bad-ass marines.

Honestly, this is better than most US prisons...

Prison is not meant to be a soft and cuddly place and trials are reserved for citizens not enemy combatants...


All of this. Yes, indeed.

@randomxnp

Because it's cool to scapegoat the US. Even though we took the high road. Sympathise with the people who want to kill you and see where it gets you.

"The horror of Guantanamo Bay is that we're holding people there without charging them. You can't illustrate that with these pictures."

Most of them were illegal combatants, subject to summary execution on the field of battle under the customs and practices of war.

So most of the inmates would have been summarily executed, either on the field of battle or after had they not been removed by American forces so as to be interrogated. Many of these executions would have been perfectly in line with European customs and practices of war as enshrined in the Geneva Conventions, and all in line with local customs of war.

So with this context, tell me again why this is such a scary place.

Honestly, this is better than most US prisons. My father was a dentist at JCI prison, BCF prison, and several others. Cells are about the same size, food sometimes has mold on it, no strawberries maybe an apple, furniture was stained with decades of human grease, and if you had a toothache you could only get an aspirin as per the state regulations.
Prison is not meant to be a soft and cuddly place and trials are reserved for citizens not enemy combatants, they receive military tribunals.

And in our military tribunals politics is kept out, enemy combatants are enemy combatants. Unlike the International Criminal Court which caters to countries they receive funding from and goes after Africa but still manages to lets people like Callixte Mbarushimana and Bahr Idriss Abu Garda go free.

Move to Afghanistan or the equivalent and show me how free you are.

Madduck, they are not citizens; therefore the right to a trial by peers does not exist.

If Obama is elected, this will stop. Only George Bush is this evil. Has anyone even tried some sort of beer summit or something?

ooh, irony. "honor bound to protect freedom".
unless of course it's not quite the freedom *we* consider freedom.
