1:32 pm
so. we want to shift this. is all of the computer program current. u.s. air force care to. show you a fair profit. if spirits can be yes it's sweet if regarding visits to. face yes we have quite a lot of where we go. just about every one day. and there are two great whites. from puerto rico to watch the flights or story. you will be required to pay four dollars a night person for watching. whatever it because you want her for telephone or area. you'll be able to see the
1:33 pm
care for which they are detained and. you know you'll see a somewhat of a character and you'll be able to photograph alright this is very good if they share yeah i thank you very much if the saw it carry more proper question would be hard. to figure. i think when i leave here guantanamo bay one of most interesting periods is that i've had is actually having the opportunity to ask media it's interesting talking to people from all around the world from korea and sweden from the middle east from north america from all around the world just have the opportunity to speak with different people and you know this here how they feel about the detainees here how they feel about politics it's a it's a huge it's an enriching experience and i feel like this is rooted in laws and his
1:34 pm
job is to show us that everything is ok here but we have come here because we want to know what is really going on and guantanamo filling isn't allowed inside the prison camp so we were thinking of shooting with a hidden camera. unfortunately that's just not going to happen. we know there's a swedish guy held inside here his name is marty he'll be released later on when he returns to sweden give only one press conference. you say you spent five months in afghanistan where did use the. fun and all these trips six trips in two years where were you. do you support bin laden and al qaeda did you meet al qaeda fighters did you carry arms what do you think of bin laden. and after that he won't talk to us he refuses to talk to anyone who has anything to do with
1:35 pm
the media. but to tell his story we have to go back in time too long before the press conference. was still held at guantanamo and when there was only one official version as you can hear it on the radio station voice of america on and al qaeda detainees are being scrutinized and interrogated at the u.s. naval base at guantanamo bay cuba only a select few american servicemen and u.s. officials have direct contact with the prisoners. u.s. officials insist that detainee's are not tortured or subject to any cruel treatment during interrogation sessions in fact they say some interrogators go out of their way to make the captors feel comfortable hoping to coax information from them in an easygoing fashion. exactly right here the
1:36 pm
story could have ended if it wasn't for this man who we saw in a public square in stockholm is marty's father and he had a feeling if things were not good at one time. and one two two four one eight or forty two forty five degrees of heat locked up and chained and then three days. night totally isolated not allowed to speak to see or to hear but mountings father didn't know that it was the other way around it was matted together with most of the other prisoners it had in fact decided to stop talking rumor now was that it wasn't forty degrees one hundred guntown him or any more of the army had started exposing prisoners to freezing temperatures to get them to talk what i would do is urge him as a father to reach out to communicate with his son via letter which we will transport and ask his son to just cooperate come clean this will help him determine
1:37 pm
his future here richard prosper the man with a good advice and puppy dog eyes. he is an expert of international law and is signed by the president to visit the countries that have citizens being held in guantanamo. here he was in sweden to persuade mentees father to convince his son to start to talk again. in the geneva conventions but he by his conduct is not the benefits of privileges to be a prisoner of war. think about. ensuring its day and night. so we have free. who's just farther.
1:38 pm
along. you need to keep in mind that the people in u.s. custody are not there because they stole a car. or robbed a bank. that's not why they're there they're not common criminals. there are enemy combatants and cherice who would be detained for acts of war against our country and that is why different rules after. disclosing will and the head of the international red cross for example people who are experts of human rights issues say plenty of clearly what you are doing is against any kind of human rights conventions there was a fundamental problem the only thing i know for certain is that these are bad people the united states at one point in time signed the geneva convention and there it stated that prisoners of war need only to answer for question its name rank and nationality and id number. four simple questions and wanted you very far
1:39 pm
when you need answers to hundreds of questions a prison camp full of prisoners of war you only need to answer for questions is a useless prison camp. but there were no other rules. and leaders from countries who had citizens at guantanamo were worried prime minister. the first matter he brought up. was the swedish prisoner he was very forthright very frank and very concerned about. the situation seems to be out of control. talking again that's. something. you simply call cheek turkish. what nobody knew was the president had written a letter. a letter that only the president's inner circle world where of. in the
1:40 pm
letter he wrote that there was a new paradigm in the world and the rules were no longer defined by the u.s. but by terrorists this new world order and got him thinking and after extensive discussions he came to the simple conclusion. the geneva convention could not be applied to terrorists. and for that reason he came up with a new word for the prisoners at guantanamo unlawful. no one had heard this word before. and no one knew what the consequences of this were . to watch occupied afghanistan. and now.
1:41 pm
we're at guantanamo or good mo as the army has nicknamed it we still haven't met meant to be he's still being held here most of the time we are on this bus tour going all the recreational activities of vailable to the soldiers stationed here. and when the operation first started out here it was something that was new and just like with everything you want to prove and fruited in the u.s. military it's a lot of emphasis on friday trying to improve the living standards for its troops to keep morale high we're talking about kentucky fried chicken pizza days mcdonald's here now is the subway here slowly we're improving the condition of the soldiers and this is just part of it right but we haven't come here to take part in
1:42 pm
the soldiers' delight over the variety of fast food and we want to know what's really going on here. here we are at the gates to camp delta where the prisoners are kept. in the. the person in front is sergeant gary johnson the man behind the scenes who has the authority over our guides as the second man is colonel mcqueen responsible for security. i miss my helmet as much as you can. are leaving how do you do. we are american soldiers and when and being american soldiers we come with a way of life for democracy that provides rights to people to be treated humanely fair for the system how do you do that because i'm a military profession as military professional i've been given a mission and that mission says that i will safely secure the detainees within camp
1:43 pm
delta and provide a humane treatment people get i did my. question ok the family for example the family of the swedish detainees you know they don't know why he's here they thought that he went to study they have no information they don't they haven't been able to see him for a year what would you tell them if you met them what would you say to that. i would tell them from the detention standpoint. each and every detainee here is being treated humanely. he. still trying to convince me to take this opportunity to tell us what had happened but something always came up making it difficult for us to meet. but now he's promised to help us to get in touch with other prisoners released from guantanamo.
1:44 pm
this is jamal from manchester who was with matting in guantanamo. and there is still hasn't decided if he wants to talk with each other. i disremember um also speak to them i know because they're what they would do the americans are putting next to each different people to see if you know a person from before author opposite speaks english putting a stop in to see you know is there any connection with these guys from you know maybe the mouth monitor from before this the devils are a bit mad oh yeah eleven people constantly moved around what. you heard was called he. or. i once thought i would like to let them know. so i'll refuse to answer that one.
1:45 pm
but it was it for me the most crucial thing here is to be. where you very. well may be. it seems hard to talk about what happened to them in guantanamo especially for many . maybe because he's devoted two years to keeping silent. and i was in the war and more tortured physically. my head comparably to add with americans told them all they wanted to know. for about six months but it was too much so i stopped talking with them for two years. they started using the methods you heard about. me i've been in the interrogation room i was kept in there for twelve fourteen
1:46 pm
hours. and they put on air conditioning and about the breeze below zero it. i saw my stupid you're talking to my god. and this caused a loss and we have you on the next phase being the someone who's next to you in this crisis so yeah i did the same thing myself. my name is sergeant angel. enough for thirty eight military police company from ari kentucky. who we think just learned to read this it's
1:47 pm
a good system. i feel like this. i'm making this case a lot in france and some sleet ohio. and in specialist matter from going to get. you know the swedish guy he's there he's. personally actually i can tell you that you know we don't comment on specific detainees or specific nationalities so they question him he would be ok and she.
1:48 pm
says this is. just. going to be about me i just don't do my job there is obviously a story for them going there. so much in every. soldier's out of guantanamo don't talk engine either do the prisoners. maybe it has something to do with this man. his name is general miller and he's the commanding officer at guantanamo is agreed to a short interview he is in in an unusually good mood. going thomas mission is to detain enemy combatants and then to gain intelligence from there to be able to win the global war on terrorism and so we are detaining the combatants and humane manner in maine matter. that is appropriate today in accordance as
1:49 pm
much as we can with the geneva convention. we do we work very hard to ensure that the detainees are maintained detained in this matter. but what's wrong with. what. the when we were doing listen to view with miller we were not aware of how important he was to the story because no other single person has had as much influence over how the prisoners at guantanamo are treated. but what we do know is that miller hasn't always been in charge of the base. before we left we found a short article about general rick baucus who was in command before miller. because it was fired under very weird circumstances the only ones who seemed willing to speculate why is military corruption an organization consisting of ex
1:50 pm
military personnel who investigate corruption within the army ok i can say to you because we're on the telephone all i can say to you is we have a network of sources that we call the. actual informant on guantanamo i can say on the. back there is a one star general brigadier general. we ran into trouble with a two star general who is in charge of the interrogation. i think is going to take the complained about policy dealing with those. who would come and sit down in front of the cage and that she speaks of the detainee's that were in the cages and then the soldiers silence and the american soldiers would seem pleased to see the big general come down and sit down on the ground in front of the. bank his gun fired because he was too nice to the prisoners. and was opposed to
1:51 pm
a secret list of unconventional questioning methods that out word goldring out this . is that. some of the interrogations may i don't have to prove. violation of rights or what we we're not sure where you hear when general who's was here no we came just after getting. you know way into. it here. have you heard anything. nothing that i would want to repeat because i don't know this is true. and as far as the history of general back is. all we know as far as he was he everyone here is on a tourist. six months and he finishes six months already more home we called up the baucus is old press secretary and southern command. now
1:52 pm
i don't know how to get a budget they need no longer in the military retired or even the a.f. he tired out earlier this month. although the article had no way of getting into it either but baucus has not retired he has been reassigned to a desk job. you know his phone number ok. for row on. now. this redacted many of his friend the filmmaker add. a d.n.a. test if you quest is a bad one tell them about what happened there. but you know that i'm not on there anymore and any i would compare the inquiry current to the other command the public affairs officer you don't talk about the top ten to the point i'm not off the
1:53 pm
record or. ok thank you for calling. the story mount baucus. we would contact him again. even if he's a just a small the pawn in a much bigger game. the security of the world requires disarming saddam hussein. saddam hussein and his sons must leave iraq within forty eight hours. passed chardy of iraqi citizens. disappeared brings a further assurance that the torture chambers and the secret police are gone forever. but when these pictures from saddam's ghraib prison came out. it's clear they have a scandal on their hands some say these methods originated in guantanamo we
1:54 pm
just haven't seen the pictures rumors have also begun to circulate new rumors of interrogators using sex and hip hop music to get people to crack. the sexual act the very. first the enemy personnel by i have met people who is up and say insulting. if you. could be. for the. world it was under their child a lot of other things but then they sent in
1:55 pm
a girl who. will continue and she came up to me and started to talk and. if she told me she could do many things for me so she started to thirty three give me a massage and so when she grabbed me a certain places and and she actually told me that she could do plenty for me. but when she came closer just certain spots you know then i put up my hands and trying to protect myself and when she saw that at the end she got angry since i didn't want to see you know we were she said whenever i wanted to see her and then on she said her name was sylvia and. just tell them that you want to see me. and then we'll arrange everything and after that and she left.
1:56 pm
maybe that sounds like a prisoner's wet dream. to have a woman in uniform come in and give him a massage. but we are sure the methods aren't used to for the prisoners comfort and convenience. what kind of bizarre interrogation methods are being used at guantanamo and what happens to the prisoners that are still being held there and are these methods really sanctioned from a. part of the answer comes thanks to the album ghraib scandal in iraq. which set off a storm of protests and a wave of investigations which made public thousands of previously classified documents. human rights activists all over the world began taking measures to get prisoners released from guantanamo even in. order to get
1:57 pm
a piece of paper like this which is called evolution of interrogation techniques one count of these are techniques actually approved by our separate area of defense donald rumsfeld and if you read them. among all the documents we find a story a story has its beginning in the fall of two thousand and two they have a problem at guantanamo the prisoners have stopped talking and the old methods don't seem to be effective anymore. now they want to interrogate for twenty hours. remove prisoners clothes let them stand naked in uncomfortable positions make them where. they also want permission under medical supervision to lower the temperatures in interrogation rooms. and take advantage of prisoners phobia. for example prisoners fear of dogs. so here you have our search area of the
1:58 pm
fence authorizing the use of dogs of course the word phobias is particularly interesting because that has to do with. the. lou just there for muslims the dogs around clean and later happens in the interrogation. when the new methods are implemented only the prisoners know and their interrogators the problem is that the interrogators at guantanamo don't give interviews and with the one exception tora nelson.
