Shit like this makes my blood boil.
Prisoners, according to Jamal, were told they had no rights. "They 
actually said that--'you have no rights here.' After a while, we stopped 
asking for human rights--we wanted animal rights.

"In Camp X-Ray, my cage was right next to a kennel housing an Alsatian 
dog. He had a wooden house with air conditioning and green grass to 
exercise on. I said to the guards, 'I want his rights,' and they 
replied, 'That dog is member of the U.S. army.'"
