US public tired of lies on Guantanamo: Allen Roland

Press TV has interviewed Allen Roland, online political columnist from Sonoma, California about the latest developments surrounding Guantanamo Bay prison. The following is an approximate transcription of the interview.

Press TV: We’re looking at this, it’s almost a tragedy in the making. I guess my main question is, why aren’t we having major reactions inside of the United States from the people themselves.

Why aren’t they outraged with this type of human rights abuse taking place by their government?

Roland: Well, it’s because they’ve all been bamboozled and they are still being bamboozled and the American public is in a high state of apathy and has been for some time.

You have to go back to 2001 and 2002 and realize that basically people were being rounded up over in Afghanistan, with bounties on them, so that the Bush Cheney administration could put people in Guantanamo and call them terrorists - and there was no trials.

As long as they could say that we’ve got people connected to 9/11 in Guantanamo they didn’t have to do anything and they’re too dangerous - too dangerous to basically export to their countries or too dangerous to put on trial.

And so the great bamboozle started.

The visible evidence of the great lie of 9/11 is Guantanamo - the most embarrassing human rights - I can’t even describe the word - “eyesore” in the world. And it continues on.
