An all-access look "Inside Guantanamo Bay"



A rep from National Geographic just sent us these fascinating clips previewing their upcoming expose on Guantanamo Bay (now that it's closed, of course) that was compiled from footage they got in a tour back in August (2008). More video clips, after the continued. Here's the synopsis:

The naval base at Guantanamo Bay secured a place in the annals of history when the first wave of detainees from Americas War on Terror men dubbed the worst of the worst arrived in 2002. A symbol of freedom protected or freedom tragically betrayed, the controversies of Guantanamo embody the thorny issues of America's fight against an enemy that wears no uniform, has no address and will declare no armistice, and an administrations battle to keep prisoners beyond the reach of due process in American courts.

The goings-on inside the wire encircling this highly classified camp have been a closely held government secret until now. For the first time, National Geographic exclusively captures day-to-day life in the most famous prison in the world exploring the ongoing daily struggle between the guard force of dedicated young military personnel and the equally dedicated detainees, many of whom are still in legal limbo after being held years.


Inside Guantanamo airs Sunday, April 5 at 9pm ET. (link)
