SGT K

I'm not done with you. (sound of door opening and then closing)


DOC

SGT N

Continue with what you were saying.


DETAINEE

Some of the deaths were unavoidable. The majority were a consequence of the protracted conflict between your nation and those nations you believe to be harboring (unintelligible very loud sound accompanied by distortion on the recording).


SGT N

DETAINEE

SGT N

DETAINEE

SGT N

You're not human.


DETAINEE
