​Gitmo exclusive Part II: Media brainwashing, sham trials & closing Gitmo for good

Abby Martin features Part II of her exclusive coverage from Guantanamo Bay Prison in Cuba, starting with the difficulty for press to cover Gitmo due to extreme military restrictions. Lt. Col. Myles Caggins, spokesperson for Detainee Policy, talks about the absurd bureaucracy of the Periodic Review Board and why the prison remains open nearly six years after Obama signed an executive order to close it down. Several prominent Gitmo defense attorneys and a sociology professor then explain why the military trials of the alleged 9/11 conspirators have become a complete sham. Another Gitmo defense attorney, James Connell, relates the extreme secrecy and over-classification that plagues the prison and harms attorney-client relationship. Finally, how to shut down the facility in a quick and timely manner.
