Houston, TX (PRWEB) January 15, 2014
Gitmo author and former U.S Army Reserve Major Montgomery J. Granger says the plot and portrayals in new movie Camp X-Ray will be brutal for the Army and for Americans. Starring Twilight actress Kristen Stewart, the film is premiering Friday, January 17, 2014 at the Sundance Film Festival.
“War films tend to create exaggerated images of reality,” said Granger. “In the end, the movie Camp X-Ray will provide a point of view shared by the majority of citizens from the images and sound bites spoon fed by a liberal media, pinning the Army as a villain.”
Granger is no stranger to Guantanamo Bay: he found himself the ranking Army Medical Department officer in a joint military operation that was like no other before it. His job was taking care of alleged terrorists, just months following the events of September 11, 2001.
Granger and his fellow reservists ended up running the Joint Detainee Operations Group at Guantanamo Bay’s infamous Camp X-Ray. In his moving memoir, “Saving Grace at Guantanamo Bay: A Memoir of a Citizen Warrior,” Granger writes about the effort it took to leave his family and job back home, only to face tremendous emotion and hatred from the inmates he was charged to protect.
“Camp X-Ray the movie probably won’t go into much detail about the oath Army recruits and officers take upon enlistment or the fact that all troops assigned to Gitmo are never to fraternize with detainees,” continued Granger. “So if Kristen Stewart’s character has a relationship with a detainee, she is breaking her oath and committing a crime.”
