US history is filled with huge mega violations of human rights. Some believe that the mere foundation of this country was carried out through massive and total genocide of the Native Americans who were killed in millions and were brought into extinction. There are also the utter horrors of the two atomic bombs ever dropped on human beings and the brutal war on Vietnam. Ever since its creation the United States of America has been involved in hundreds of wars and conflicts the world over resulting in millions of deaths and tens of millions of people losing their homes and livelihood.
The most recent of US violations of human rights in large scale happened after 9/11 when it launched its not UN-sanctioned war against Afghanistan and later Iraq. Then the world witness a new phenomenon in International Law and that was the creation of Guantanamo prison camp where detainees are kept indefinitely and without any access to legal presentation or trial. This documentary looks at the US government’s encroachment of human rights throughout history with a primary focus on The Guantanamo Bay detention camp.
