Justice Denied: Voices from Gitmo

ACLU just put together a video of some of the detainees who mistakenly ended up at Gitmo. The whole video is quite good–but these two lines should be read by all Americans.

Moazzam Begg: My experience of America prior to this was everything that I had seen in the films… the concept of the good guys, the concept of people trying to do the right thing…and, that was shattered.

Omar Deghayes: I want the people themselves, humans, the people in America, good people which I met many of, to realize how in their names those ugly people have done to others.
