Yes, we should take a testimony of this sort seriously. While this may be a ploy, any accusation of this sort requires further investigation into whether it is true or not. Simply because a man (or woman) is imprisoned does not mean that the information they have is less valuable. Granted, those at Guantanamo Bay have committed much more serious crimes, but we cannot discount an accusation of this sort on those grounds alone.
This is the direct result of a POTUS whose only job was nailing posters to telephone poles, and is an arrogant, ignorant, incompetent narcissistic Chicago Alinsky thug community organizer with a shady, carefully hidden Marxist past and no military, business, foreign policy or leadership experience. “The United States is grateful to the government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia for its humanitarian gesture and willingness to support ongoing U.S. efforts to close the Guantanamo Bay detention facility,” the Pentagon said. The Pentagon? There is something seriously wrong with the top leadership in our military if they think this is a good thing.
There is already sufficient evidence that there have been abuses in Guantanamo Bay. They say that absolute power corrupts absolutely. These guards knew that they had power, so they decided to mock, torture and abuse people. Their own carelessness made them take photos and expose themselves. There is already credibility to the claims so we should take them seriously.
Guantanamo Bay is known for torturing thier prisoners. People in prison, particularly people who are being tortured will say anything that they think people want to hear in order to get out of the situation that they are in. This is the kind of thing people want to believe about Saudi Arabia.
