    Absolutely dispicable, the treatment these people are getting Caged like animals with no legal rights probably in most cases for being in the wrong place at the wrong time And they think of themselves as a civilised country..perhaps things might slowly be changing though

    Guantanamo The War on Human Rights is a novel by David Rose Guantanamo gives regular civilians a better idea of what happens at the max security prison camp The prisoners lives and treatment is exposed through interviews and analysis The system of processing that occurs to each detainee is also documented, and mistreatment and abuse is revealed through that system as well Rose also exposes how the interrogation system is flawed as well He explains how many interpreters and interrogators are untrained and not experienced in the job that they must face Also, Rose discusses how the US government made an uneducated decision when it came to creating Guantanamo and running the camp the way that it is run today He concludes through all of these points that Guantanamo wasn t worth being created, due to the fact that not much information was collected and most of the detainees were proven innocent I would rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars on a 5 star rating system The book was interesting and engaging, but I felt like it left me wanting after reading it However, the book still was interesting enough and gave me a different perspective on an interesting current event.

    This was well written, examining just how George W Bush was an asshole, made America into a bully, and destroyed the ideas of democracy and freedom Read it if you want to get angry or if you happen to find it in a guesthouse in Malaysia.

    As an insight into Guantanamo and its injustices, and generally the resurgence of torture as an intelligence technique , it is a helpful and well researched read I d recommend it But I also felt that, as an analysis of where Guantanamo fits in the wider landscape of US foreign policy, it was weirdly lacking it seemed to paint Guantanamo as wholly anomalous and uniquely bad, even at the same time as it acknowledged that detainees faced even worse treatment at other US sites, leaving it feeling strangely decontextualised at times.

    I find some fault in the last chapter that tends towards opinions against the Bush administration rather than concrete fact but this book is EXCELLENT I read it in two days Awful topic but a necessary read in order to prevent this from happening again.

    If you want to read anything this year, read this book It will change your perspective.

    Confirms your worst fears of the situation in Guantanamo and the depths of incompetence and cruelty of those responsible Chilling

    This is a well written and honest account of life inside Guantanamo It s a pity that this is probably one of those books that only college students will end up reading.
