Brandon Neely Speaks about David Hicks
Brandon Neely served in the US military as an MP at Guantanamo Bay and in Iraq. The following is a taped address that he filmed from his home in Texas where he is now a police officer.
This pre-recorded film from former Guantanamo Bay guard Brandon Neely was played to the attendees of the campaign launch on the 13th May 2011.
The following are some words from Brandon’s address:
“Torture is wrong…. People in our government need to be held accountable for actions that have taken place over the last 10 years. It is up to people like you and others to stand up and demand accountability of our government and say ‘enough is enough’. And now is as good a time as ever to demand that the Australian Government and American Government do a real investigation into treatment that David and many others were subjected to. The abuses at Guantanamo, Abu Ghraib and elsewhere cannot be talked up to the actions of a few bad apples…. If this doesn’t end now, when will it ever end? Who’s next to be treated in that manner, you? me? I don’t know, but I don’t want to find out either.”
