"Guantanamo Bay: The Struggle for Human Rights"
Chaplain James J. Yee is a former US Army Chaplain and graduate of West Point who served as the Muslim Chaplain for the U.S. prison camp in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. After being officially recognized twice for outstanding performance, Captain Yee was arrested and imprisoned in a Naval brig for 76 days in September 2003 while being falsely accused of spying, espionage, and aiding the alleged Taliban and Al-Qaeda prisoners. Chaplain Yee's gripping account of his Guantanamo experience and struggle for justice has been recently published and is entitled For God and Country: Faith and Patriotism Under Fire.
