In the clip below (exclusive to the Huffington Post), former detainee Shafiq Rasul recounts a method of torture used by the US Army against the Gitmo detainees: being chained to the floor of a holding cell in a crouch position for up to six hours with a strobe light fixed on his face and deafening music blasting in his cell. In the trailer above, that moment is juxtaposed with Donald Rumsfeld's voice: "The fact remains, the treatment is proper...there is no doubt in my mind that it is humane, and consistent with the Geneva convention, for the most part." That "for the most part" is what "Road To Guantanamo" is all about.
Today from 1-2pm EST on Gather.com, co-director Matt Whitecross will be live to answer questions and discuss theistory; the Tipton Three — Shafiq, Asif, and Ruhel — will field questions as they are posted on the site. Comments may be posted directly to the link above and the livechat will be here.
