2:24 pm
in the off to mall of the attacks the u.s. numerous the biggest global manhunt in its history. shortly after this man mark fallon a senior naval intelligence agent arrived in the new and prison facility in guantanamo bay he had been appointed deputy director of a special task force charged with tracking down al qaeda terrorists. but the more he saw as contaminated the more concerned he grew in. what they were trying to do was create what's called learned helplessness a fieri based on experiments done on dogs sleep deprivation extreme isolation. a practice called walling. facial slaps slamming your you against the wall it's a debilitating practice it wears you down. i didn't know what it was daylight
2:25 pm
outside i didn't know the times there was no calendar and being on the subject on almost for a year and a half and i want to access to other human beings into meaningful communication with my family a son and being born i didn't i didn't even know what his name was so there's all these sorts of things happening and so once i exploded in myself literally and punched and kicked and cried and screamed and one of those sorts of things. in new vendor two thousand and two computer come onto arrived at guantanamo bay here. his name was major general geoffrey miller if you speak to many of the other prisoners who were held at the time in the in camp x.-ray and elsewhere they'll tell you that he was his the regime caught during his period was the harshest they faced you know he brutalizing these prisoners are given we have this program called the frequent flyer program we wake them up the middle night just transfer around it
2:26 pm
sleep deprivation it's isolation they were doing mock executions they wanted to bring people up in helicopters and make it look like they're going to be thrown out they were just making it up as a way they were used their imaginations are running wild. at the time miller himself shed new concern about the regime he ran in guantanamo everything that we do side care built america can be proud. then in two thousand and three he was sent to iraq to devise about interrogation that. try to stop i went back to the pentagon and said this guy is clueless doesn't know what he's doing you know he's brutalizing these prisoners. in two thousand and four appalling images emerged from abu ghraib prison in iraq we also have deeply disturbing footage starkly illustrating the desperation the regime created in prison is.
2:27 pm
the images from abu ghraib caused shock around the world and in the off to martha eleven relatively low ranking u.s. soldiers were convicted with sentences ranging from imprisonment to reprimand. afterwards major general miller he did vised about interrogation addressed a press conference in the prison yes i would like to personally apologize to the people of iraq for the actions of the small number of leaders and soldiers who violated our policy. have. committed criminal acts major general miller insisted the torture and abuse at abu ghraib was the responsibility of roots soldiers notice the put out of the top down culture we tried unsuccessfully to contact major general miller through the u.s. department of defense they declined to pass on our questions as his not retired our own procedures are internationally recognized for his bay detention of proper
2:28 pm
interrogation today the us has a new commander in chief during his election campaign and pretty cool for the return of waterboarding a practice condemned by un special rapporteur as torture they said what do you think of waterboarding i said i think we absolutely need it we should have it and if we can't we should have worse. when the president of the united states most powerful person on earth says these things that just encourages people to behave in the most. paraguay lawyer clive stafford smith organization reprieve has represented eighty prisoners at guantanamo has been released one of the great truisms is if you don't know your history years you wrote in your mistakes you know we have someone in the white house right now who knows nothing about history. of the repute and a mistake has been made to the spanish inquisition and so we need to truth out
2:29 pm
there. but today some say the american administration seems even more determined than ever to stop the truth about the cia's post nine eleven program getting out and that led to one of the most disturbing claims we heard during the course of making this film. and it's this that the torture of detainees in the cost is now impeding the quest for justice following the nine eleven attacks over the past years legal hearings have been underway at a secret court on the u.s. naval base in guantanamo. america's justification for holding prisoners at guantanamo is controversial. by declaring that the war on terror is an actual ongoing war the us government has argued it can detain captives of this war without charge for as long as it wants. but if they do then charge any of these detainees
2:30 pm
with specific crimes for example the five men charged with involvement in the nine eleven atrocity there to be tried by going ton of those special courts known as military commissions. one of the five is. accused of helping fund flight training for the nine eleven hijackers. in washington we met his defense team these civilian invalid. the law is approved by the pentagon but that doesn't stop them being deeply critical of the treatment hundred out to their client by interrogators. in my nineteen years of service the rule we have always been taught is we don't torture there's a thing that has the innocuous name of water dousing and water dowsing is water boarding without a board it's essentially drowning in ice water many of those things and worse
2:31 pm
occurred to mr obuchi but the u.s. government says certain classified evidence on torture must be kept secret but i'll bet you choose defense team says that prevents them defending him properly so this is a death penalty case and as such were entitle to you know all the evidence that's relevant and material to mr heartly just facts and that would include a lot of evidence from his time in cia custody where he was being tortured three and a half years. the prosecution has consistently dragged their feet on giving us that evidence the defense finds itself in the position of having to make sure that the very values that the prosecution or the u.s. government has claimed for so many decades are actually appealed therefore for me it is a chance as i see it to truly uphold the constitution of those of the united states that sterling has a much more measured response to this but but now it makes me angry that seventeen
2:32 pm
years post september eleventh almost we are still sitting in a courtroom in an offshore prison at guantanamo bay with a prosecution that is determined to hide it torture from more than a decade ago and that i think is is offensive to and should be offensive to all americans. andries base near washington d.c. . this is where our journey starts to the u.s. naval base at guantanamo bay. forty five square miles of america on the southeastern corner of cuba. the military commission hearings take place at camp justice inside his camp there
2:33 pm
is a multimillion dollar legal complex so secret not allowed to film it all say where it is journalists meanwhile are billeted in these tents. the trip it again tom has only been possible under very strict conditions we've had to find a long document agreeing to restrictions on what we can film where accompanied at all times by a military minder that mind our checks all footage so all the pictures you will see from here have been vetted. first light at camp justice kuantan and every day begins the same way with the star-spangled banner. the media h.q. is based in a partially derelict aircraft hangar where we await a military minder to accompany us to the secret court.
