My Guest today is: Paul Pantone GEETinternational.com
      Paul was incarcerated on dubious charges in January of 2006, and kept incarcerated far longer than he was supposed to be. He ended up in Utah State Hospital in Provo. Judge Royal Hanson was trying to have Paul forcefully medicated – and we all know what happens when that is successful: a loon made so by the state – but Paul refused.
    Meanwhile, he had a foot injury and dental issues that went sorely neglected, which Paul’s son David, who is living in France, has been reporting. (Ref.) These things appear to have been used as a form of indirect torture, as a way to force Paul into compliance. They would not administer antibiotics, pain relief, or other needed medication unless he would also take the psychotropic drugs. Well, now he’s out, and so are his teeth, and he’s got quite a story to tell – though the details will have to wait as he is under court order to keep his mouth shut on certain things, at least for a while. But that doesn’t keep David from talking, which he does openly at GEET.nl In addition to David's work, another initiative that was monumental in securing Paul's release was http://GEETFriends.net, who helped raise the funds and raised public awareness to get legal representation for Paul. The release appears to have been the result of a senator in Utah hearing the story of his mal-treatment, and saying, "That couldn't be happening in Utah." Paul recalled a time when he and some fellow inmates were watching a piece on television about Guantanamo, and they looked at each other and remarked that their conditions there at the state hospital were worse.  Paul is now residing in New Mexico, Please go to http://freeamerican.com and www.shop.freeamerican.com to order my books and the new Free American Magazines.
