photographs of the trials at Guantanamo Bay cannot be taken by reporters because the U.S. Government has declared that this contravenes the Geneva Conventions

even though
the U.S. Government has contravened the Geneva Conventions in every other aspect of this incarceration

"enemy combatants"
& kept detained
at the pleasure of
George W. Borg

even though
the linking of
"George W." &

is outlawed
under the Geneva Conventions
as a cruel &
