Can Wikileaks Expose Life In Guantanamo? Insider News

by | 5th, August 2010

WHAT’ S life like in Guantanamo? Can Wikileaks dish the dirt on life in the prison camp? The reporters can’t. Carl Rosenberg explains:

Not just because you sleep in tent city where the ventilators and generators sound like you’re inside a jet engine. Nearly everyone else expected in court gets housing elsewhere. The lawyers have trailers. The translators get townhouses and the judge and juries get guest quarters. The reporters get tents because if you protest, guess what they say: Don’t come.

In court:

Guantanamo is a place where you get assigned seats in court, and if you’re me you usually get one of the two or three seats that can’t see the witness stand. Even if the media gallery is mostly empty.
