2. Waiting to see if this continues to fall beneath the "camel jockey" thread
that keeps getting kicked.

Let's see. A concentration camp being run by the U.S. government v. a "camel jockey" post.

Hmmmmmmmm.

3. Here are just a few things I've read....
One transcript is a man who was sent by relatives to retrieve a family member. Another is of an old man who can't even walk.

Take some time and read through this stuff if you can. You'll find they rounded up just about anyone who happened to be around.

5. This is very tough reading, but it is important. I just spent the last
hour reading from the minutes of the "hearing" of a Kuwaiti man who had gone to Afghanistan to do refugee work. He previously had done refugee work in Croatia and Bosnia. It is heart wrenching. His story is in pdf file # 53.
His story is preceeded by that of a man from Zambia. His hand written statement is reproduced. Take a look at it.
As I was reading, I tried to imagine what it would be like to be in their position, not able to see evidence against oneself, not able to have witnesses, having been tortured and having statements extracted by torture used against oneself. I just want to scream. This if not the America I grew up to love.
Please read what you can.

6. Some pages are missing...
I'm skipping around through the documents and while reading # 45 some pages are missing. If you go to page six of the PDF file, you'll see there are four pages missing from a detainee's testimony.

7. I appreciate the bits posted...
I don't have time just at this moment to pour through it, so some snips for us is much appreciated.

Those who have read some of it should continue to post stories.
