DOJ: Genital searches of Gitmo prisoners "not as bad as it sounds" (VIDEO)
Federal appeals court judges in Washington, DC questioned the need for genital searches of Guantanamo Bay detainees in a hearing on Monday.
The detainees are being searched when they want to exit the facility to meet with their lawyers at an off-site location.
Their lawyers say the invasive and humiliating searches began right after the mass hunger strike at Gitmo started earlier this year.
RT's Meghan Lopez takes a look at how the searches prevent detainees from meeting with their lawyers.
