Good documentary, no sympathy for some person.
25 September 2013 | by richard-dianeSee all my reviews

I watch the documentary on RT press. What is bothering me the most is all the lies that brought all those American military actions around the world. More than half the planet doesn't believe in a terrorist attack on 9/11, serious people have over and over destroyed the government version with proof. The second thing is that educated person acting in this film are still believing they acted righteously while in Guantanamo. I would like to point out one 15 years old kid named Omar Kadr who spend more than 8 years incarcerated there, torture and all with the choice of pleading guilty and be sentenced to 8 years in jail with the possibility to a transfer in Canada, or being put to trial and facing 40 years inside. Not a hard choice because they knew that every thing was fixed and that he will be find guilty anyway. Diane E Beaver as a lawyer knew very well that all of their human rights were inexistent and not respected. She actually didn't observed the oath she took as a lawyer and should be reject from the lawyer bar of the USA and each independent state. She cried a little bit at the end of the film, but it was too late the crying should had taken place at the beginning and she should have refused to participate in that cruel zoo. The only one who deserve an applaud in this is Matthew Diaz and he lost everything. Madame Beaver you will have all your life to deeply regret yours actions, and since you seem to blame god for it, it should be the judgment of god who pursue you. You don't deserve any compassion from nobody. You make your own choice. Like the saying goes...how you make your bed is how you sleep. Richard Berube MOntreal
