Bagram is one of the pre-eminent hellhole prisons currently run by the U.S. military. In many respects it is even worse than Gitmo, with torture and death being the result for many prisoners detained there.

The country behind this propaganda is the US . . .” — Former British Foreign Secretary Robin Cook”
