The film contains some classic scenes of President Bush, Prime Minister Blair, and Donald Rumsfeld defending the abuses at Guantanamo mentioning that these are “bad people”. The film chronicles the story of the Tipton Three that were detained in Afghanistan and sent to the U.S. prison in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba for years before being promptly released upon their return to Britain.
I suppose they would probably say these juveniles also detained at Guantanamo were “bad people” and then they wonder why Muslims see this continuing war on terror more and more as a war against Islam and the Truth.
The little talked about tortuous practice of force-feeding prisoners on hunger strikes continues despite protests from a large number of medical professionals. It has been mentioned that the medical doctors practicing this peculiar form of torture did alter the forced feeding times to accommodate the times of the fast in Ramadan for a couple of detainees.

No, I will not watch the film. I do not need my blood pressure to go that high! For Bush to say “These are bad people” is an indictment on his grasp of the American justice system. EVERYONE – and that means everyone, is innocent until proven guilty!
“As soon as men decide that all means are permitted to fight an evil, then their good becomes indistinguishable from the evil that they set out to destroy.” Christopher Dawson
It seems that increasingly, Muslims are guilty even after being proven innocent or they are found guilty on the most circumstantial evidence that would never be used to convict a person of any another faith group.
The rub is that we are then told that we must do more to condemn and combat terrorism perpetrated by Muslims while turning a blind eye to terror tactics used by others against us. It’s a strange world, indeed.
At least the British and Saudi governments did something for their citizens, its unfortunate if you have an Australian passport like David Hicks or an American one for that matter.
It is almost enough to make a citizen want to take up arms against his own Government!
I didn’t say that!!!!! Two wrongs do not make a right.
David Hicks is more a victim of terrorism than a terrorist.
this is a good movie masha’Allah my entire family bar my dad have seen it…even my lil 10 year old brother who is into world politics and history watched it….
asalamu alaykum wa rahmatullah,
I watched it in the summer, and it is very powerful. May Allah shower His relief and ease on the struggling and suffering muslims. ameen
The language disturbed me, but it showed how they weren’t really practicing when this happened to them and now they are alhamdulillah.
