In Guant?namo, national security rides roughshod over human rights Shaker Aamer

PUBLISHED January 5, 2014

The language that they use here at Guant?namo reflects how they treat us prisoners. Just the other day, they referred to me as a "package" when they moved me from my cell. This is nothing new. I have been a package for 12 years now. I am a package when en route to Camp Echo, the solitary confinement wing. I am a package en route to a legal call. "The package has been picked up ? the package has been delivered."
