Guantanamo( Visual )

2 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

According to the Bush Administration, the war on terror requires new tactics and new thinking - including departure from the Geneva Conventions when deemed necessary - ever since the September 11 terrorist attacks, 2001. Afghanis and others captured at the Afghanistan-Pakistan border who were suspected of being terrorists, rightly or not, were imprisoned at Guantánamo, which was described by one official as "the legal equivalent of outer space." This program shows how George Bush's policies are implemented at Camp Delta, how they are vigorously defended in the name of national security, and how they are contested just as passionately on behalf of personal freedom and human rights. Reporter Peter Jennings interviews Gitmo's commanding general and former Administration insiders, shedding light on decision-making within the White House - while reports of innocents such as Kuwaiti Fawzi Al Odah and first-hand accounts of experiences inside the prison compose the darkest dimensions of the story
