A Close Up View of Detainees at Gitmo

Patterico interviewed a military nurse who spoke with many of the terrorists at Gitmo. It’s a fascinating read.

“Stashiu” had a position at Gitmo that allowed him to get up close and personal with some of the worst terrorists in the world:

Stashiu’s title was Division Officer for Behavioral Health Services, which meant he spent hours talking to terrorists about what makes them tick.


I talked to many of the detainees there at one time or another, sometimes for hours upon hours to build a rapport. Some of the hardest ones in there would do things for Psych that they would never do for guards.

Wow. What it must be like to delve into the mind of a terrorist. Read the rest of Patterico’s interesting post.
