The War On Terror – Unsubscribe

Last modified on April 26th, 2008

Matt posted this on his site this morning, and after watching it and reading about the backstory for it (the person in the video is actually not acting — he is in real pain), wanted to share it here too. The scene depicted in the film undoubtedly occurs daily in some parts of the world, namely Guantanamo Bay.

I just read this little blurb on Wikipedia, and for some reason found it rather disturbing:

In 1986, Guantanamo became host to Cuba’s first and only McDonald’s restaurant, as well as a Subway.[25] These fast food restaurants are on base, and not accessible to Cubans. It has been reported that prisoners cooperating with interrogations have been rewarded with Happy Meals from the McDonald’s located on the mainside of the base.
