CNN Pentagon correspondent Chris Lawrence is reporting this week from Guantanamo Bay with exclusive access and interviews. Lawrence reported on CNN’s The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer:
“Wolf, when we got down in some of the cell blocks, we couldn't help but notice that the guards are wearing splash guards. These are plastic masks that protect them from the feces and urine that's being thrown at them at times.
