Guantanamo Bay Art

"I broke a rule at Guantanamo, and it was worth it: I chose to wear shorts for my tour of the detention facilities at Camp Delta. Who can blame me? The sun was high and the mercury was inching toward 100, and Gitmo's rules for reporters change on an hourly basis. The public affairs officers at the media center told me and the other journalists that shorts were acceptable attire for our visit. As soon as we arrived at Camp Delta, we spotted a weathered sign at the front gate that tallied the don'ts: no shorts, no open-toed shoes, and no orange clothing (lest you be confused with the prisoners)."
