Scott Horton Interviews Brandon Neely
Former Guantanamo prison guard Brandon Neely discusses the first six months Guantanamo was open for business (covered here by CNN) when no guidelines existed for prisoner treatment; why the guards thought all Gitmo prisoners were 9/11 terrorists and treated them accordingly (as it turns out the vast majority were not guilty of anything); covering up brutal prisoner beatings by Initial Reaction Force (IRF) teams; how soldiers and prisoners alike are bullied into keeping quiet about their experiences at Guantanamo; and why Gitmo is a “black eye on America.”

Brandon Neely is a former Guantanamo prison guard and current Iraq Veterans Against the War (IVAW) member.
