I saw this movie a few months back and it is very powerful.
A synopsis of the film:
Filmed in Yemen and Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, The Oath interweaves the stories of Abu Jandal, Osama bin Laden’s former bodyguard, and Salim Hamdan, a prisoner at Guantánamo facing war crimes charges. Directed by Laura Poitras, The Oath unfolds via a narrative rife with plot reversals and betrayals that ultimately leads to Osama bin Laden, 9/11, Guantánamo and the U.S. Supreme Court. Winner of the 2010 Sundance Film Festival Excellence in Cinematography Award: Documentary. A co-production of ITVS in association with American Documentary/POV. You can view the trailer here: http://www.pbs.org/pov/oath/
Interview with writer and journalist Victoria Brittain: the show features discussion on issues such as the use of torture, the Guantanamo and Bagram detention facilities, detainees such as British resident Shaker Aamer, and the state of the 'War on Terror' under the Obama Administration.

The book is out now. It is a sobering read on the plight of those men and women that we have unlawfully detained and imprisoned without trial for years by the Bush era war criminals. Peter also recounts our meeting at Guantanamo and follows some of the developments in Mr. Al-Ghizzawi's case. This is a must read.
If you have not read Ron's book then you do not have the whole story about what I have been doing to try to get my clients out ofGuantanamo. Ron kept up with my activities and even followed me around on occasion to get the full story... then he weaved my story in with the stories of other individuals who are concerned with the direction of the United States. I recommend the book to all of you out there who also care about the direction that the US has gone these past eight years and want to work to change things.
