Hello again Flying Focus supporters

A few days ago, the US released a prisoner from Guantanamo Bay, leaving just 38 
people there in the now 20-year-old human rights stain on our country. 
Coincidentally, a generous donor has made it possible for us to post our recent 
show featuring Steve Wood, a former Guantanamo guard, on our YouTube full shows 
page so now you can watch it anytime you want.

Here's the link to our website page:


or watch it as a playlist to see both parts combined:


Below is a description including chapter breaks we've to help locate specific 
content. We always appreciate any feedback. If you enjoy the show, we hope 
you're share it with other people.

A Former Guantanamo Guard Speaks Out

     Steve Wood was a guard at the US' prison at Guantanamo Bay as a member
     of the Oregon National Guard. He was told the detainees were the worst
     of the worst and responsible for the 9/11 terrorist attack. He was
     assigned to a special shift to guard Mohamedou Ould Salahi, considered
     one of the US military's highest valued detainees located in a special
     unit inside the prison called Camp Echo. Ould Salahi, a Mauritanian man
     held for fourteen years without charge, wrote a book about his
     experiences ("Guantanamo Diary") which was turned into a movie in 2021
     ("The Mauritanian").

     On January 13, 2022, two days after the 20th anniversary of the prison
     camp, Wood spoke to members of Portland's Amnesty International Group
     48 on a Zoom presentation. He was interviewed by Megan Harrington
     Wilson, whose thoughtful questions prompted a lively conversation.
     There was also Q&A from audience members.

     The event was video-captured by Dan Handelman of Flying Focus, who
     edited and produced this two-part program.

    Streaming made possible by a generous individual.
