Army admits soldier was beaten by fellow MPs in Guantanamo ‘drillâ€TM

by NewStandard Staff

June 12, 2004 – In a new development to the story of a Military Policeman who says he was brutally beaten by American soldiers at the US detention center in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba, the Army has admitted that Specialist Sean Baker was discharged because of an injury sustained in the beating.

The admission is a reversal from previous claims made by Army spokespeople that Baker was medically discharged in April, but for reasons unrelated to his claims that he was severely brutalized during a training exercise at the Guantánamo prison. According to Baker, he was dressed as an inmate and told to play the role of an uncooperative prisoner.

Baker says that soldiers beat him so badly they gave him a traumatic brain injury because of which he now suffers from seizures. He said the soldiers only stopped brutalizing him when they realized he was an American soldier.
