I just Watched...Taxi to the Dark Side

Well I just watched...Taxi to the Dark Side...and that's where the fun ends. This 2007 documentary about the horrors which occurred within the American Bagram Air Base, Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo Bay during the war in Afghanistan and Iraq is gripping, raw and powerful.  It's by far one of the most shocking documentaries I've ever seen and several times throughout it I realized that my jaw had been on the ground for ten minutes or so. Sobering thoughts ahead.



Taxi to the Dark Side starts by following the story of Dilawar a taxi driver who was brutally beaten and murdered during his interrogation by US Special forces. Dark Side starts at the brutal and shows us the rabbit hole to some of the things the United States Military has been committing with the war on terror. Torture, water boarding, sleep deprivation, sexual humiliation  and many things way worse are all committed, authorized, later denied, exposed and then explained by the people who committed theses acts to sometimes innocent Afghan and Iraqi civilians. 

I suggest everyone who wants to become agitated and disillusioned with the American Military Complex to sit down and see what they don't want you to see them do behind closed doors.

Just because our enemies do this stuff doesn't mean we can too. We should never forget how low we allowed ourselves to sink. And before someone just pins the blame on the government: we voted them in. We gave them power and said 'go nuts'.
