Watched Mauritanian last night on Netflix. Great movie with events I maybe heard in news, but did not really track at the time.

Refresh you memories of those held in Guantanamo.

..." Directed by Kevin Macdonald, the film The Mauritanian depicts the true story of Ould Slahi and sheds light on the abuse Guantanamo prisoners have been sentenced to over the last two decades. Perhaps most importantly, though, it highlights why President Joe Biden must indefinitely close the notoriously violent prison."...

I just saw it this week too, and yes, great movie, and a same thing, I recall some news stories about it but didn't know the story at all.

Pretty outragious what we did to him.  I do remember when the scandalous interrogation techniques hit the news, the movie didn't tell what happened to the people responsible, I hope they were all prosecuted and went to prison.  Doubt it though.

Most of the prisons are filled with beatings and rape. I dont see what makes this prison special. Maybe the amount of innocent people and muslims in it?

Another must see to believe, because of the incredible photo-vid documentary of some amazing aspects of "Our Planet"  { 2019 } on netflix via David Attenborugh.  I think he states that human population has doubled in 50 years, since we got our first views of Earth from the moon.
