Dive In: It Don't Gitmo Better Than This

From artist Molly Crabapple, a searing, surreal account of life at Guantánamo Bay, where 166 shackled detainees at the mercy of Enhanced Reaction Forces coexist with a McDonald’s, a Gitmo gift shop and a Team Gitmo outdoor movie theater; where visiting journalists bed down in Camp Justice in order to write censored and circumscribed stories the military then rates “friendly,” “neutral,” or “adversarial”; where information is contraband, staples are weapons, force-feeding is humane care, iguanas are protected - killing one brings a fine of $10,000 - and almost nobody reacts anymore to the astonishing fact that just 22 of 166 prisoners who have languished there for years are even "chargeable," never mind convictable, of any crime. Yes, it's still there.
