Joe Biden Signs $768 Billion Defense Bill

"Signed this 768 billion defense spending bill, it includes 2.7% pay raises for the troops. Top Democrats have long advocated for the closure, of course, of the U.S. Navy base in Cuba, Guantanamo Bay, this bill would not allow that. This bill does not provide the funding for relocation. In a statement by argued that two sections of the bill barring the use of federal funds to transfer detainees to certain foreign nations or to the U.S. unless specific conditions are met unduly impairs the ability of the executive branch to determine when and where to prosecute Guantanamo Bay detainees and where to send them upon release. The president added, in some circumstances these provisions could make it difficult to comply with the final judgment of a court that has directed the release of a detainee on a writ of habeas corpus, eliminate these restrictions as soon as possible the president ask. I don't know why the Democrats are so sat on eliminating Guantanamo Bay. If you end up in prison on this, this island, you've done something pretty bad.

"So how do you. How do you think that the american public would react to that idea of a plea deal. I would say not well. It would feel that way to me as well. And it's just weird because when you make a plea deal you know that there's evidence against you. Generally this not always but the reasonably deal happens is because you know it looks really bad. You're probably going to get a super intense sentence so you take a plea deal in order to lessen that sentence that's what a plea deal is right right. You agree to plead guilty to some or all of the charges against you in exchange for some leniency in sentencing or series of concessions. Yes so like so like one example would be in. This is just a very general example. One example would be if you are already in prison for several heinous crimes right and you then you know you're attached to maybe another murder or something like that. Let's see multiple murder multiple people. Then you could make a plea deal to assist in in solving further in exchange for life in prison instead of execution like. That's a that's a very extreme case of plateau deals with fairly petty crime a smaller much smaller felonies. Where it's much it's more effective in getting a case through the system to to have someone accused something take a plea deal rather than having to go through a full trial right so you can get in this case. It's like okay we've done. All of this has been all this time rather than do a full trial. Just do plea deals well. What doesn't plead. Ill often involve giving somebody else up or providing useful information not necessarily not necessarily can but sometimes it's just the case record especially in like a petty crime the implication being that If you take this to a jury Then these sentence will reflect that you have inconvenienced the system..

"Here's where it gets crazy you. What as a matter of fact matt before we get to the trial. I think it's important to note that regardless again if your stance on prisons in general or get guantanamo bay detention camp in particular. It's not just human rights groups such as journalists talking about torture at this facility. People who worked there have come forward with this same claims this. This is something that you know for administration. So we're very supportive of bonomo. This this is at the very least not a good look in some cases. These are damning accusations Just last year january. Twenty second guy named james mitchell psychologist. An interrogator of prisons at guantanamo bay detention center testified about horrific human rights violations. That occurred at this at this facility. Wise mitchell important. Because he didn't just interrogate prisoners himself. She also created this as post september eleventh interrogation program and the stuff that he talks about is pretty gruesome. that's right. He described in graphic detail. How detainees were tortured while still not being charged with a crime or afforded. The you know the kind of treatment that even the most heinous criminal when get you know on. Us soil torture included the use of tactics like waterboarding between now of anyone seen zero dark thirty or any of these films that came out around the war on terror probably seen depictions of that. Mock burials stress positions. That's we've seen believe their photographs of that from the abu ghraib prison scandal as well folks like you know in these kind of being forced to stand on a very narrow bucket for a very long time or being forced into these. Very uncomfortable poses All kinds of deprivation torture in terms of sonic torture. All of that kind of stuff and since many of the detainees guantanamo. Where i held in these black sites which we've got a whole episode or maybe multiple ones about Then are created by the cia that don't officially exist or they might have been held elsewhere by the military And they were also tortured before being transferred to one tana mobile. There is no official chain of custody right or records showing where what happens to them. And they're able to use that legal loophole of guantanamo. Not officially being on us soil to justify that even if that stuff happened elsewhere. It's all very very slippery The lawyers involved are all required to sign indy as nondisclosure agreements that prevent them from talking about any claimed act of torture. Goes back to the netflix documentary. Just because it shows you the exact wording of the these types of enhanced interrogation that they were using and why they were using them how they got the government to sign off on it and can't just watch it if he can. What was the famous line like icy new problem with this..

You are here not makes this the stuff. They don't want you to new welcome back. In the first part of our series. We explored the history of guantanamo bay including these centuries. Long obsession that so many four empowers have had with controlling it and as we said no. We're previous episode for most of the world. Today the word guantanamo no longer describes just that southern bay and harbour area in the nation of cuba. The word instead means one and one thing only the world's most notorious prison so now we're diving into the deep water. What's going on in gitmo. Here are the facts. So for many many people in the us and across the planet this detention center occupies a strange nebulous dodgy legal space officially opened as a temporary facility and the first twenty people detained there normally hear them called detainees all the time in the news. They were transported there on january eleventh two thousand and two eventually over the next few years. Hundreds of prisoners from multiple countries would find themselves at all in all there have been around. Seven hundred eighty detainees held to get more at some point since it opened in currently as we record this there are thirty nine detainees still held there many of whom have never been charged for the crime. And that's remember from our last episode. That's after the nineteen nineties when haitian refugees were kept there as well as a few other. People were kept there specifically in camp x-ray we're gonna be talking about well camp x rays one of the places that we're talking about but what we're referencing right now. As part of gitmo is camp. X-ray this outdoor cage like thing and after the attacks on new york pennsylvania the pentagon in september two thousand one the bush administration bush junior by the way launched a what they call the war on terror so starting.

"Additionally when we say it was a strong arm. Deal should've mentioned this earlier. The us required cuba to amend their co constitution to incorporate this agreement. This kind of devil's bargain. If they if the cuban government did not agree than the us would not have allowed them full independence because after the treaty of paris was spain. It was kind of up to them up to the. Us government of the time. What happened to cuba. Puerto rico the philippines wom. This was something that the cuban government was forced to do. And so if you are growing up in the area then you can understand why this would seem tremendously like this would seem like a problem right like what if you. What if you grew up in you knew that in your country right or in your state. There was this foreign occupying force. No one could do anything about it. And they're what they're paying like for. What is four thousand. Just like four thousand dollars divided by twelve. Like how much is the monthly rent. There i totally see what you're saying. Then but i think if you have someone some power help you gain independence then having that power in some presence in some way in your country is probably not balked at as as heavily. Sure i mean. I think that's a valid point but let's also consider that before the. Us came into the into the theater of this war. The only cuban. The cuban people have been fighting for independence against the spanish for decades. So you could say. I'm sure many critics of this policy. Who agree you could say that. What happened is the us kind of came in at the end. Yeah and said look at us. We're helping sort of like if you're if you've ever helped a friend moved and somebody shows up right at the end right and they carry one box and then you know who i am. Man zoff did we get some of that pizza and beer. I totally see that. Point to ben. Because i think i think both might be true a little bit even if they helped out a little bit maybe forty five miles square miles of land. Isn't that crazy. But then pushing it. Further and further from one thousand nine hundred date to the nineteen thirty four date when they tried to get it in the constitution. That's when you're like. Oh that's a little. Come on whether you wanted to be independent. Don't you or you know what. Hey that's a. That's a nice idea for a country. You have would be cool if it worked out. Yes but also from the cuban perspective strategically if you've got the united states military as an ally in it's just up there and you've got a bay down here where they can deploy anybody that's gonna come and mess with. Cuba isn't going to cause the. Us navy is the big player in town in the world. And i can imagine how that's also that goes into the calculus of are. Maybe we should go along with this. I completely agree. And you've reminded me of a quotation from a senator at the time in the us that maybe we'll give some more context into the motivations for this sport unquote protected defensive. Move as the as the. Us was ramping up to to intervene in cuba. One senator pulled out all the stops to try to get everybody on board with this intervention. His name is senator. john thurston i. He said it was his wife's dying. Wish to quote free. Cuban it's people and then just for backup. He added this. He said war with spain would increase the business and the earnings of every american railroad would increase the output of every american factory. It would stimulate every branch of industry and domestic commerce. It would greatly increase the demand for american labor and in the end every certificate that represented a share of an american business. Enterprise would be worth more money than it is today. Not quite protecting. People's quality of life has an odd quote to me. Man that is wow doesn't american senator. That is that is the senator john. Thurston jonkers my wife's dime wish. No kidding you guys is to free the cuban people from spanish occupation also. Who likes money. Yeah everything's going to get better. Wow that's that's intense okay. And it's it's strange to think of it that way because people do argue for economic benefits in war there just careful about who they're talking to when they say it you know they read the room. So that's why you'll hear politician. It may be a public facing environment. Say something like we're protecting our national interest. What are those national interest. Exactly so your question. Well what do you think those national interests are. You can find us on the internet right. Let us know absolutely we.

"Controversial axe. That's right in the nineteen nineties. The us used guantanamo bay as a place to dump a three hundred hiv positive refugees It was essentially being used and described as a prison camp and also the us that is in turned over thirty thousand haitian refugees there on the base. Eventually they let ten thousand seven hundred forty seven of them into the us but they also entered Cubans that were seeking asylum there. Yup they did. And this became one of those locations that you may have heard of in in the past. In other. Parts of the world where the question becomes. Is this refugee camper. Is this open air. Prison right are we. Are we helping these people or are we simply holding them. This was the first large scale use of the area as a prison. Or center of incarceration and it happened like you said. In the early nineties nineteen ninety-one directly following the overthrow of haiti's first democratic elected president which is a story all its own. Maybe when we covered a future episode. So this at at the same time the us government is is putting these folks in these refugee camps. The is helping assisting death squads. That are traveling around haiti and they they were killing again. The supporters of a democratically elected president. Jean bertrand aristide. The white house said why the white house didn't say hey. We're doing this while you know. The cia is killing people. They said we're we're going to be using guantanamo a quote tent shelter for people fleeing violence in haiti and if any of these refugees may trouble or thought to be making trouble or were suspected of being troublesome in the future they were sent to a nearby site. Still on the base called camp x-ray today that location is known as the guantanamo bay detention camp. It's also just known as a glorified dog kennel. Yup and that that comes from the reporting that initially showed the world the chain links the chain link comprising the fencing right and it does look like a kennel so when president bush senior then president of the time when he decided to send a lot of these haitian exiles back into the chaotic fray of the country. They'd hoped to escape something. incredibly important happened. And it's something that maybe maybe slipped by in some of the new cycles and in this the. Us supreme court ruled that these refugees regardless of their behavior regardless of wire how they ended up in this area they were not entitled to rights that you would normally have in us system of justice or as a person seeking refugee status in the us were seeking asylum. Because in this case guantanamo doesn't count as us soil now. It's cuba if the problem. If it's a responsibility it's cuba's problem. Now they seem to say so. It's essentially as foreshadowing right panamian. It's essentially an argument that can made as to whether or not you ask laws. Apply when you're there and in terms of what you can do to the people there and the prisoners there what you can do to anyone at any time in anything. Yeah it's it's a weird legal blackspot gray area whole sin. It's why everything else happened. Yes well said. This rationale forms the basis of everything. That would come to pass in the future. This is a have your cake and eat it too situation for uncle. Sam think of it this way all right for a little over four grand a year. If you're the us you control all aspects of day to day life and military operations in this bay it is your call except that is when this control would include responsibilities that you would rather avoid so all the sudden like think of it. I'm just killing them with terrible analogies here but think of it like a. Let's say you've you've got a roommate or maybe you've got a kid right and the kid says this is. This is my room except when it's time to clean it then it's you know that it's just another part of your house. What are you doing in there to me. How old that's nothing. Check the platte agreement. I don't have to tell you anything. He got us. He got agreement should have never signed a treaty with my child. And this this what we've done here is we've set the stage for the problems. And controversies the corruption conspiracies the allegations of torture that have been wrapped up in the story of guantanamo for the last two decades. So just for perspective here. You know we think that like we are spending a lot of time in this first part of this series on the history. Because that's that's a question that's a story that needs to be addressed more openly. The question is how did we get here. I mean before diving into this. We're you all aware about like the history of guantanamo and just how many countries we're trying to grab the throne absolutely not. I honestly took for granted. The idea that This whole weird kind of changing of hands in this whole life. Power grab that. The us did With cuba is literally what led to all the atrocities that were definitely going to get Super into in the second part. I mean i just i completely Miss that entirely so now. This is absolutely educational for me personally personally for me. Both of my wife's parents came from the island when the revolution was going down. So yeah. I knew a little bit about this after meeting her. You know it was right after september eleventh and everything so i learned a lot about this place because it was a weird who is a weird thing when you hear that detainees from the war on terror are being kept in cuba weirdly enough and you know for us in our in an early relationship. It felt like a very coincidental thing like vow. That's weird that would just happen. But he realized that again. We're going to save a lot of this for the next episode. Because that's when we're getting into the on terror itself and how that altered things for the state here but it is very weird to think about cuba of all places on the earth as the place where you'd end up sending detainees as a sovereign nation. That has tunnel and mass just north of where we're keeping them. Yeah and then also this is the. There's another aspect of the history might have stood up to some of our fellow listeners. That a lease usually has an end date. one does not have an end date is just renting forever and.

This is something a lot of the reporting can miss times important to notice this before. One time obey. Hit the news.

"Lease they make it permanent and the only way right now legally from the us perspective at least the only way this agreement can end is if one of two things happens one the us unilaterally decides to leave the bay or to both countries agree that the us should leave. Currently the situation. Is that the government of cuba. Very much thinks the. Us should leave and the us does not agree. And that's it. They'll be there forever from now on until they're chased out. Maybe yeah well. Because that nine hundred thousand. Three agreement got repealed replaced from the perspective of the cuban government especially post communist revolution. The us forces in guantanamo are an illegal occupation. They're illegal occupying force. And that's something that you won't hear reported too often in the west.

Doda smokybear dot com to learn more about wildfire prevention. Brought to you by the us forest service your state forester and the ad council. Here's where it gets crazy. Well first of all back in nineteen. Oh three the terms of the lease itself we're actually outlined in something called the pla- agreement And it set those terms. What would be largely considered an unequal relationship between the united states and cuba clearly with the advantage. Being given to the united states both countries would get free access through the bay and while the us controls day to day operations it ultimately in theory does recognize cubans sovereign new. There's certainly some Symbolic recognizing of cuba sovereignty there. So why was the agreements controversial. Well the platte agreement did pretty significantly challenge cuba sovereignty. Well tacitly acknowledging it as well by mandating that they actually include these conditions for withdrawal of troops The us would also adhere to into their very constitution. Ben the this is your wheelhouse my friend with international affairs background to. Can you explain. What a strong arm move. This would have been seen as or or was it seemed that way. Yeah yeah was because it was so the idea was that we will not only have this agreement rain. You want us out okay five. We'll leave leave if you do these things and not only. Do you have to do these things. But the make sure that we're super locked in on this. You have to take what you have to take our caveats enough to put them in your constitution so like imagine for example if after this is not a perfect comparison but imagine for example after the After the revolutionary war right france said okay. We're going to keep getting keep new york harper. We're going to pay a little for it but we're gonna keep it and we want you to put the following stuff in your constitution. Yeah it's kind of you know it's our law. We wrote it but you guys should put it in. And what's more. You should be grateful. That's that's kind of what happened here. And like so many of these. These sorts of coercive moves the stated goal is one of defense and protection. Like hey help us help you. That's that's the way it's phrased but there's already something conspiratorial about this. Because the person who signed off for this on the cuban side guy named tomas estrada palma and he was he would later go on to be the first president of cuba but he himself was an american citizen. So there's kind of an inside man argument here as well. You can see why this didn't sit well with a lot of people but then adding a little bit of insult injury here. Truth be told uncle. Sam got the land for a song up until nineteen thirty four agreement the government of the us would would controlled this part of the island and in return they would pay two thousand gold coins per year for their lease nine thousand nine hundred eighty four. That changes a little and they say okay. We're going to match. We'll still give you the equivalent but we'll give it to you in dollars because we're super into were supernet. Paper currency now post nineteen thirteen. You know what i'm talking about so we're not gonna we're not going to give you actual gold bay. Hold these coupons you guys you know i owe you. I love the concept. Somebody in fort knox is just pulling gold bullion to print gold coins specifically take cuba for their lease and this relationship. These odd bedfellows remained relatively stable and didn't change significantly until another pivotal moment in cuban history. Which was the revolution in the nineteen fifties the rise of fidel castro and the us and cuban relations surprise surprise steadily declined as the castro government became closer and closer.

Has this Communist for the Washington Post filled bomb ever been to the jail? No. In fact, I doubt that he knows that the deplorable jail even exist. There is no indication in his column that he realizes that three dozen January 6th capital protesters are sitting in that jail has been in that jail since February. And that there are dozens of all for other jails across the country being denied bail simply because of their involvement in January six He doesn't mention that in his article. Why do you think that is Because he's a fraud. That's right. Let's go on, he says. Here, um Host Mark Living is focused on the issue repeatedly in June, he told his audience that we're hearing That there in some of the worst jails. Some are being put in solitary environment where they only have an hour where they can go outside of that. That they're being fed poor food. They're being treated like they're terrorists at Guantanamo Bay, where they be treated actually better. Is there something I said there that's inaccurate. No. And, um it's too bad that Philip Bump didn't listen to the oath Keepers status hearing that I did today, where there are three keepers. None charged with violent crime. No weapons charge.

"Directed but in a time like this is essential. Look of known. Forget i gave you the first balanced budget and three decades and we did three in a row and i love to fourth and we paid six hundred billion dollars the national debt which was real money back then. This is not that kind of time. We had a crash in two thousand eight which blew a three trillion dollar hole in the economy. Then we have the corona virus crash which was bigger for a all the stimulus money. that's been spent. We're still about three million jobs short of where we were before. This thing started when there is negative growth and zero interest rates. Only the government can provide the impetus to jump start the economy. And since we're doing it. The president has a plan to try to shape the future with modernize infrastructure including broadband for all these small towns and rural areas and a lot of transfer to clean energy and but things that are generating jobs and a big plan to help small businesses it. If we haven't done that god only knows how many million people would have been thrown our parliaments too. Many lost their jobs as it was. So yeah i think the you know. People need to just park discussing the government for a while. Let's get the thing back to you. Know ground zero and start growing again then. We can argue about how much the government should and it does. Seem to be the Discussion jour american politics is what would you do about the filibuster. If it was up to you well the filibuster was set up to ensure prolong debate. It was used in the civil rights era to try to kill civil rights bills and starting in about one thousand nine hundred ninety three or four started to be used all the time and it was used on a president obama. So it's now been used to try to prevent a repeat twenty twenty when we had the enormous voter participation so all the states that are in the hands of people who don't like that and wanna maintain a racial incoming differential or trying to make it harder to vote. I would understand presence reluctant to get rid of it. Altogether and i sympathize with joe mansion. Who's trying to you know. Stand up the right thing and represent people that voted more than two one for president trump. But i think when it comes to preserving democracy you know. I would suspend the filibuster because i think it's essential. I don't think that we should be in the business of going backwards in trying to drive down voting rights. I think we need to expand it. And i think that every time we've done it before it's made us better. Country made a stronger country and it'll do both parties good to have to get out and compete for all these new voters. I so yes. If it were me for this one purpose. I would not allow on expansion and basically a production of voting. These guys are trying to take us back. Decades in voting acts the people that senator mcconnell represents james. You've had in your books of the president's gone missing. The president's daughters come messing with the theme.

"And corrupt governments always tried to hide their agenda or their flaws in the garb of patriotism.

And that's what they are doing right now for the police on January 6th good job. Good job. Nothing to see here. Why is it that these police are good police, But police everywhere else are bad Police. Can you explain that to me? I don't have the mental capability to to even try to go into that twilight zone. Yeah, I get I get it. So law enforcement stormtrooper section if they're defending a courthouse. That they should give medals of the defending the Capitol building. And I began the program by trying to give a historic perspective which the media will not give. Nobody else will give. To demonstrate that this was not an insurrection. You want to talk about violence shootings in the capital bombings in the capital. I'm not saying there wasn't violence associated with this, but it was nothing close to what we've seen in the past. And all that said. It's not an excuse. The problem is the exploitation by the left the exploitation by the attorney general, the United States and the exploitation by the media and their people today as we speak sitting in jails In solitary confinement. Those families are saying that they're being poorly fed and poorly treated. And we had terrorists in Guantanamo Bay, and we had hearings and concerns about how they were being treated and civil rights groups and advocacy groups. We have nothing. Nothing now going on. With these American citizens. It's disgusting.

NASA to still be there is within the law and but she didn't get access to the American justice system by this point Mike Fallon and his team of highly trained and experienced investigators they had determined that most of the Guantanamo detainees were basically innocent or have been sent there by mistake but this didn't fit the official narrative the bush administration and the military leadership we're telling everyone the Guantanamo was filled with men who would stop at nothing to destroy the United States so Fallon and his team of al Qaeda experts were essentially sidelined and the guys who took over interrogations were mostly army reservists and conscripts shows some many of them had no experience and I would talk to them and I asked have you ever done interrogation before and many of them would point to the person sitting across the room and say oh yeah I role play with this other soldier before the so the first time they were ever in a room in an actual I have a surreal interview was with a potential all kind of suspect at Guantanamo bay and so it was just these guys weren't getting any results system but they were impervious to the possibility that the man before them might be innocent in fact each failed interrogation was taken as proof that these detainees were al Qaeda and have been trained to resist interrogation when the CIA wanted to torture what they said was that there was a sophisticated training program that made these people almost superhuman and they could resist you know even our best interrogators so we need to utilize these techniques and these torture techniques in able to break that survey of doctors a new set of math it was meant to is they they call that that that the triple DES debility dependency and read and so the goal was to make that person's existence so dreadful to dehumanize and so much to treat them like dogs that they're only so source of refuge would be their interrogator these techniques didn't come about by accident they were part of a plan drafted and approved by government lawyers and psychologists but the tactics when conceived by the Americans they originated during the Korean War they was basically the same techniques that the north Koreans utilized against our service members and the north Koreans weren't using them to gather intelligence they just wanted to elicit false confessions for propaganda purposes so what the CIA was doing was actually engaging in a process that we knew produce false information and so how anyone logically can conclude that that would be an effective method to obtain information is just absolutely ludicrous the US military considered Mahamadou Salah he to be its highest value detainee they thought he was the leader of al Qaeda cells in Europe and Canada.
