This is What Terrorist Prisoners Did to Me -- And Why They Should Be Kept at Gitmo

I pulled that last post because the main point of it -- the video -- is down at the moment. The hosting company took it down due to the inclusion of the beheading in the video (which I should have warned you about).

Also on that site, though, a link to this harrowing story.

If you click on that, you're going to see a fairly tough image of this former guard, now blinded in one eye.

I was a federal prison guard at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan. In 2000, I was with a prisoner, Mamdouh Mahmud Salim, taking him back to his cell. His cellmate was Khalfan Khamis Mohamed. They were accused of bombing two embassies in Africa in 1998. Later they said that they worked with Osama bin Laden and that they helped set up al Qaeda.

We were back at their cell. It's only me and those two guys. No supervisors. Just the three of us. Somehow, they slipped out of their handcuffs.

They sprayed me with some kind of hot sauce. I couldn't see. They pulled me into the cell and hit me — boom, boom. They hit me so much, I swear to God, like a hundred times.

I hit my radio. I thought help would come.

They wanted the keys for the other prisoners, but they couldn't find them. They were in my front pocket. I used to be big, 300 pounds, and I was laying on them. I gave them my car keys.

About halfway through, they used a comb — thick and long, about 10 inches, with a handle. They'd taken the teeth out and sharpened it like a knife.

They put it in my left eye. It went three inches into my brain.

Thanks to NJConservative for the pointer on that.

BTW, I'll repost that vid once it's back up on a server.
