Inside Guatanamo documentary

I watched this last night and it's fascinating. Most of the guards come from working class and/or rural backgrounds with barely a high school education. They want to do the right thing but their jobs are miserable. The documentary interviews a few of the people in charge of interrogating the prisoners there during the Bush administration and they are definitely disturbed individuals (or in denial). Finally, you hear the voices (but do not see the faces) of some of the prisoners there.

Plus, there's a used car dealership on the base of 7,000 inhabitants! And a McDonald's drive-thru.
