The Grand Illusion

The US military staged the interrogations of terrorism suspects for members of Congress and other officials visiting the military prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to make it appear the government was obtaining valuable intelligence [according to former Army Sgt. Erik Saar] ...

Michael Ratner, president of the Center for Constitutional Rights ... said Saar's claims support lawyers' suspicions that the official tours of Guantanamo were phony. "They couldn't show people what they were really doing, because what they were really doing was illegal and inhumane," Ratner said. "It's such a fraud. It reminds me of the special concentration camps set up in World War II. They would take the Red Cross there to see there was an orchestra and all sorts of nice things.
Also, this interview with fired FBI translator Sibel Edmonds should be required reading. FUBAR barely scratches the surface.
