When Will the World Understand What GTMO is Really Like?

Satellite televisions are playing in the cell blocks 24/7 for detainees at Guantanamo Bay to watch. It is astonishing that the worst news to come out of GTMO in the last year is that the detainees have broken into factions of tv and non-tv watchers.

When one considers how well these men are treated, it is pathetic that the rumors of alleged torture continue to characterize people's image of the place. It couldn't be farther from the truth. It is as if no matter how many stories the media releases about detainees having unbelieveable accomodations and privileges (despite the fact that they were captured while engaged in terrorist actions), people will never believe that GTMO is not nearly as terrible as the rumors say.
