Report on Guantanamo from Winter Soldier 2

US/Iraq: I Saw the Interrogator Waterboarding Him - UN Security Council - Global Policy Forum

"I would like to share with you how one goes about becoming a concentration camp guard without having made many decisions," 24-year-old former Guantanamo prison guard Christopher Arent told a crowd of hundreds at last weekend's Winter Soldier gathering outside Washington, DC. "I was 17 years old when I joined the Army National Guard," he said. "My family had just been displaced and I was living with friends. My family was poor, I was poor and I wanted to go to school. They promised me a significant amount of money toward that goal -- funds I have yet to receive."
