Seven Years of Guantanamo, Seven Years of Torture and Lies
Seven years ago, on January 11, 2002, when photos of the first
orange-clad detainees to arrive at a hastily-erected prison at
Guantanamo Bay, Cuba were made available to the world's press, defense
secretary Donald Rumsfeld reacted to the widespread uproar that greeted
the images of the kneeling, shackled men, wearing masks and blacked-out
goggles and with earphones completing their sensory deprivation, by stating that it was "probably unfortunate" that the photos were released.
