Welcome to Guantanamo Bay, Cuba...

A BBC correspondent was allowed inside Camp Delta, the prison compound at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. At one point, the prisoners tried to talk to the reporter. The tour was stopped immediately and the reporters, who were blamed for the incident, were forced to erase it from their recorders. They didn't erase all the recorders, apparently...

On a tasteless note, Guantanamo Bay has a gift shop which sells tacky tourist crap, primarily to the soldiers.

From one of the T-shirts on sale:

The Home of the Sand Rats

Al Qaeda Six Pack

Listen to the broadcast (19 minutes, RealPlayer), or read the article for more details...
