Man's Inhumanity To Man (cont'd.)

"They try to do their best to destroy me mentally to stop my hunger strike. They come to clean the cell in the middle of the night and make strange noises just outside my cell door. This is all in the name of 'checking up on me' and 'making sure I am all right'. I swear I have never seen such a devilish way of thinking as they seem to have. Sometimes I really stop to wonder whether they are human beings."

- Shaker Aamer from his diary, July 2005 during hunger strike at Camp Echo, Guantanamo Bay. [Bad Men : Guantanamo Bay and the Secret Prisons by Clive Stafford Smith]
