Death chamber planned for Guantanamo Bay

Today the BBC will report on plans described General Miller, camp commander, to build a permanent prison and execution chamber for convicted detainees.

This comes 10 days after the Associated Press obtained thousands of pages of tribunal transcripts through a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit. In these transcripts, many detainees claim abuse and torture, and claim that they fabricated stories to make the abuses stop. "At that point, with all my suffering", one detainee said, "if he had asked me if I was Osama bin Laden, I would have said yes." Other allegations include having been sold to US forces for thousands of dollar rewards.
