The Guantanamo Files

Wikileaks has done it again – now they’re revealing hundreds of files from Guantanamo. The media, of course, will probably misrepresent these files, especially since they are written by the people working at Guantanamo and thus contain all sorts of highly suspect information. Don’t forget people were tortured to make the confessions recorded there. However, the files also contain lots of information about how many completely innocent people, even children, were incarcerated in Guantanamo (and almost certainly brutally tortured).

If you’re a game developer and were uncertain about making a Wikileaks Stories game because the cables didn’t give you any good ideas, maybe the personal stories of these people will inspire you. Concentration camps should not be tolerated, not anywhere in the world, and especially not in countries that were founded on the principles of democracy (or at least the hope thereof).

This is your chance to do something. Use it.

  1. I don’t understand how the nazis got made out to be the biggest bad n the world…and the americans basically, are doing the same thing. It really does seem like the victors write the story..determining whos both good and bad

  2. Well and actually the argument Hitler used to convince some important group of people to try and exterminate the Jews (the thing he is most reviled for) was actually ~”countries have committed genocide against other cultures before and no one remembers”.

    But that is the thing must people who in the past have done horrible things to whole cultures were the victors so even now that we are no longer ruled over by the Mongols for example everything we know about that time has been filtered by them to reflect well on them so we do not look at them the same as Hitler who lost.

    Basically History hates the loser.
