GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASEPrison guards here at the Guantanamo Bay prison are attacked on a daily basis by detainees, according to Commander John Filostat, a prison spokesman for the Joint Task Force (JTF) Guantanamo.
There are daily attacks against the guard both verbal and physical, such as scratching and other assaults, Filostat told reporters on Tuesday. Guards endure that on a daily basis.
Detainees also engage in splashing, which is when a bodily fluid cocktail is tossed at guards, who now wear protective wear and facemasks when dealing with high value prisoners being held at Camp 5 and Camp 6, according to Filostat.
Theres some type of resistance every day, Filostat said, noting that a small number of detainees are still being force fed due to hunger strikes.
We will always have those trying protest, Filostat said.
One guard and his family were physically threatened by a detainee who had obtained a copy of a media report that featured the guards name and photograph, Filostat said.
Personal information about the guard was used against him as a threat by a detainee who had read the report, he said.
A lot of these detainees are still in the fight, Filostat said. The guards are in constant contact with folks who want to do harm to them.

TREATING THEM LIKE HUMANS SEEMS TO WORK! American prisons have the same problem
I wonder how much different that environment is there verses the super max prisons here in the US?
Here in the US, we just have a different breed of monkeys flinging poo behind bars.
This story cannot be true. Obama promised he’d close Gitmo down.
I could treat my dog like a human, but he is still a dog.
Also, it seems like the detainees are behaving like chimpanzees ...
The same thing goes on in jails and prisons everyday in the U.S. The only difference might be the frequency of incidents. Assuming that Gitmo is just one facility, everyday is pretty frequent.
Add six pages of introductory history and four pages of notes, though, . . .

Then you are not much of a Commander are you?
And some people get in a tizzy about waterboarding these disgusting animals.
I agree with my oldest son on these who have the blood of innocent people on their hands:
there is no punishment too cruel or painful for them . . . the worse, the better.
One thing, I think Gitmo was not built to keep terrorists, who essentially have never left the battlefield. In California, where I worked, the max joints are physically constructed to be more safe. Shit still gets thrown around, just not quite as much.

Funny, isn’t it? A citizen might be shot and killed for what prisoners do on a daily basis.
